Longest coyote kill shot...1860 yards!!
Youtube ^ | Apr 30, 2014 | TheDartman76

Posted on 05/20/2014 4:43:31 AM PDT by Jed Eckert

The Dartman and the neighbor take down a big o' male coyote at over a mile.

We believe the 300 made the hit. This is our shot data.

The 300 win mag - 2768 fps with 208 amax = 3.490 second time of flight.

The 338 papua- 2778 fps with 300 berger = 3.019 second time of flight.

The 338 should have hit about 0.4 seconds before the 300 and making us conclude the 300 made the kill.

more info- 300 win bullet drop @1860 yards=84.5moa or 1645 inches=137 feet of bullet drop. Energy at target-484 fp.

338 lapua @1860yards=65 moa or 1266 inches=105 feet of bullet drop. Energy at target-1012 fp.

The guy did good. Wish we had places for those kinds of distance shots here in Florida.

What a shot! I’d be more impressed if it were a congresscritter. ;)

"That's because long shots generally go places you wouldn't wanna have to go afterwords to have to confirm 'em. Confirmation's a desk pogue's problem. You know what it takes to make a shot at that range? Everything comes into play that far. Humidity elevation, temp, winds, spin-drift. There's a 6-10 second flight time so you have to shoot it where the targets going to be. Even the coriolis effect, the spin of the earth comes into play."

Regardless of the distance, I'm impressed that a coyote can fire a gun that accurately.

I am in constant amazement at what it takes to make these shots. My longest big game shot was probably less than 300 yards and most generally less than 150. I do enjoy varmints (very little targets) out to several hundred yards.

It warms my heart to know there are citizens out there who can make shots like this. And not a single "assault weapon" or "high capacity" magazine in sight.

In fact the shot could have just as easily been made with a single shot rifle. :)

My longest was an antelope at 970 yards. The wind is the most important factor, the rest of it is just math, a very good rifle, good optics, and practice.

At a 1000 yds a 2 mph cross wind can move a bullet a foot, and it gets a lot worse the further you go, and how do you knw what the wind is doing between you and the target. You just need the wind gods on your side.

In this neck of the woods it's usually 100 yards or less for most everything.

We're hard pressed to even find a range that offers anything over 100 yards.

That's pretty darn good too. Care to share some details: rifle, caliber, load etc.?

Was it a one shot kill?

Pikers! Elmer Keith said he shot a deer at 600 yards with a .44 Magnum S&W. Open sights!

He has been called a liar ever since, even though tests showed it could be done.

as for me? I can’t even see 600 yards!

Ever see the guys who shoot at maximum ranges with old milsurp rifles? Hits on an 18” round steel plate at 1200+ yards with iron sights are not unusual.

137 feet of bullet drop is like shooting a mortar.

I used to have an 1880s 45-70 Springfield manual that had fold-outs in the back. They were "killing range" diagrams of standing men and men on horseback. One specific "killing range" with the 500 grain infantry load was the distance between being hit in the head and hit in the ankle at 1,000 yards. That lethal distance was something like 20 yards, so if you were off by just 20 yards in range estimation either way, you'd miss.

Makes this guy's shot all the more remarkable, even though he admitted it was a "scratch shot".

This is #1 of 78 videos on the subject. It might be an idea to download them all considering what happened at the Bundy Ranch this past week.<

SNIPER 101 Part 1 - Introduction - Rex Reviews

Snipers, hunters, target shooters, ladies and gentlemen... Finally, Rex Reviews releases this long awaited free online long range shooting / sniper tutorial. TiborasaurusRex will walk you through everything you will need to know about sniper ammunition and cartridge selection, rifle and equipment options, basic and advanced external ballistics, making effective ballistic charts, rangefinders and distance determination, long range marksmanship, shooter / spotter team dynamics and communication, choosing a FFP, making the shot, spotting the shot, and much more.

This course goes far beyond what is covered in the U.S. Army FM23-10. So, if you can't make it to Quantico or the AMTU to learn these long range shooting skills, this video tutorial series will have you covered. We will get you set up to make amazingly accurate first round shots at 1 mile and beyond. Do you want to be able to zap that white tail buck at 1,275 yards and be confident it will be a nice clean kill? Watch this series!

All law abiding men and women in the free world who treasure their rifles MUST have these long range shooting skills for the continuation of our shooting culture and for the future preservation of our wonderful nation! Peace is beautiful, insure it by sharing these marksmanship skills with your friends and families to exponentially increase our nations already robust defense stature against. Stay clean, obey the law, and keep smiling.

I think everyone needs a hobby and I'd like to suggest one that may just possibly become a popular patriotic one - learning to shoot at long range targets. Have you ever wished you could hit a small target that is 3000 feet away? Yes, 1000 yards seems like a long distance but it does not require that you spend $5000 on your equipment. 1,000 yard BUDGET RIFLE! .243 at 1,021 yards - REX Reviews

Do you want a real budget rifle? How about a target that's 944 yards away. Nail it with a M91 Mosin Nagant - using 7N1 Sniper Ammo and no scope! That's right just IRON SIGHTS!

Look at the course that Rex has designed for everyone. Here are some of his video titles on Long Range Shooting.

I’ll bet that if were sincere and follow Rex’s advice that you wouldn’t spend $300 for ammunition. If that’s too much then maybe you shouldn’t attempt learning to shoot long range.

Cheaper than a day a Disneyland and way more challenging. OR three rounds of golf. OR a night at the strip club. OR less than one truck payment. BTW I reload 338 Lapua for our local long range shooters, not one of them winches at the price. Nothing like reaching out and touching a target at 1,000 meters.

After attaining a degree of proficiency at my “father’s knee” (and reloading presses) I was actually paid to advance my skills at the University of Science Music and Culture for a number of years.

After ‘graduation’ and cultivating my brother’s training in the arts of gun smithing and manufacture, I’m now a lowly field tester for his enterprise.

Field testing from the 1000 meter range in Yuma to any of the safe vistas on public lands in Arizona and New Mexico we continue to caress the bang switch with the exotic and innovative products that come my way.

Guess the short answer to your query would be that I’m still paying, forward as I can. Dollars and cents? What does it matter at this point?
