Thread: New long range thread!!

  1. #1

    New long range thread!!

    Today the long range forecast is, anyone who mentions long range will have a SHOWER of long range tactical nuclear weapons rain down upon them.
    ScuddMalc and TridentAlex have assured me that they can both turn the key simultaneously and press the BIG red button.

    Forgive me!!
    Couldn't resist..

    My wife says "it's too long" but I said "what do you know about long range cooking?"

    How far would a deer have to be in order to be definetly too far away to shoot.

    I mean even by accident?

    I reckon 5 miles.

    A deer at five miles is an ethical target.

    Discuss.

    Not strictly true.... because you would have to use a .17hmr to get out to that distance and you'd be unlikely to get .17hmr for deer on your ticket

    If other sensitive topics that come up all the time (head/neck shooting and calibre choice) are treated equally we could be thinning the membership down substantially.
