Long Range? We haven't even started!

Log in to see fewer ads
I read abouth the worlds longest shot & I shoot at 300 yds every decent day but we're not even close to what they did 100 years ago. Here's a current club in the UK.
https://sites.google.com/site/thelon...ire-ballistics Great formulas, tons of info. We're rank beginners. Here's just a small part on the history. The link above opens the site & you can link to lots more great info.

Former and Existing Competitions for Long Range .22LR
Around 100 years ago, competitions for the .22LR at up to 200 yards were included in the July NRA Meeting, and in fact the Donegall, at 200 yards, was open to .22 rifles until 1967. After the Second World War, Col Turbutt of Derbyshire presented a series of cups for shooting with the .22LR at 200, 300 and 500 yards. These trophies still exist and are competed for annually in a meeting, held at Thorpe Cloud range in the Peak District, at the end of September. I have competed at this meeting for the last two years and very good fun it was too. Here at Bisley, Surrey Smallbore Rifle Association runs the Leslie Williams at 200 yards and a long range shoot at 300 yards every spring. In April 2013, the NRA held an inaugural Long Range .22 Trial, which attracted 20 entries, and they are repeating this on Sunday 27 April this year. The course of fire will be 10 shots at 100, 200 and 300 yards in the morning, and 15 shots at 400 and 500 yards after lunch.
