Who here, benchrest guys included, thinks they could start at 100 yards and shoot 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 800 900, & 1000 yards and keep it under 1/4 MOA?

I highly doubt I could, but Iíd love to try it with a rifle that can.

On the internet with no witnesses I could do that all day long.

Trying to hold 1 MOA all the way out would be a considerable challenge if every shot counted with no sighters or mulligans.

I'm not saying it can't be done by someone in tbis world....

But I'm almost saying it can't be done. Any little missed read in the wind, and it is a miss. After, of course perfect ammo, a scope that can dial tight enough, and a shooter with impeccable form.

Out to 1,000 yards?

Anything is possible once. I have serious doubts that anyone could do it with any level of consistency. But if you shoot enough groups, I figure it's not out of the realm of possibility you could get a 2.5" group at 1,000 yards.

But to start out at the beginning and say you're going to do it every 100 yards out to 1,000 with one group at each 100 yard interval, that's a tall task...

That is a tall order, but with all the 1/4 MOA shooters on the internet someone I am sure it has been done. roflmao

Nope, not for me. I like to bet, so I'd say within 1/2 to 3/4 might be possible for me. But the wind is going to mess you as soon as you get out past 500-600 yards. If it's a zero wind day, or very slight breeze, that would help. With the right rifle and load, I'd say 1/2 is doable.

I'd have to run a 100 round ladder test and develop the perfect load

Then find a used Tikka ultralite

mount a Vortex Diamondback scope

Put on my 5.11 tactical pants

Use my wiebie bad bags for rests

get some suggestions on how to clean the tikka

run my brian litz dope cards through my labradar

Rent a D-9, clear 200 yards of trees at a firemans buddies farm

load and make ready
