Modern Shooter: Testing The Limits Of Long-Range Shooting


Do you have what it takes to make the most challenging long-range shots come in? Find out on the next Modern Shooter.

Today’s gun media talks about it like it’s a cakewalk with extra icing, but 500-yards is a long shot by anyone’s account. How about a mile? You’d better have clear sights and your nerves steady if you expect to beat the distance and ring steel. Brass tacks, the range is a challenge in and of itself. Add these variables in, it’s an entirely tougher nut to crack.

Truer to what a marksman might actually encounter in the field, moving targets, angled shots, and cross-canyon wind gusts make it a magnitude or ten more difficult to drop a round in than having your feet firmly planted on the firing line. But when your DOPE is straight and you hear the ringing of steel… WOW!

Testing the limits of marksmanship, the Modern Shooter crew heads to the high, rocky ridges of Colorado to see if they have what it takes to score on long-shots. A beautiful backdrop and the smell of burned powder, it doesn't get better. Well, maybe when you connect from a mile out with a shifting 10 MPH crosswind it does.

See if you have what it takes to go long on the rest of this episode of Modern Shooter, 10:00 p.m. EST tonight on the Pursuit Channel. The episode rebroadcasts Monday at 12 p.m. EST and Tuesday at 11:30 a.m. EST.
