I attempt to shoot a steel torso
target at a distance of 2707 yards 1.54mi was the GPS reading. Corporal
Craig Harrison is in the record books for the longest confirmed kill at
2707 yards. I was using 300gr Berger bullets traveling at 2740 FPS.
This shot required about 35 mils of hold over, with the nightforce NXS I
was able to dial 27.5 mils, back the magnification off to 13X and use
the bottom of the 5 mil reticle. With a flight time of just over 5
seconds it comes in pounding with 740ft-lbs of energy at 1.54mi away. It
took me 21 shots to get my first hit on the target, this was definitely
one of the toughest shots to make.
