An army sniper using a cal. 308 (7.62mm) Remington 700 BDL with an Accu-range scope zeroed at 600 yards made a sniper kill at 1700 yards.
Folks, that is 60 yards short of a mile.
Remember this from the NRA American Rifleman magazine.
I was commenting on Ken's "story" about the army 1,700 yard shot with a 7.62mm sniper rifle. It sounded like a "load" to me. I seem to recall Hathcock making a very long shot in Vietnam with a .50 cal. BMG mounted with a scope, 2,000+ yards! See, I'm not quite as dumb as you thought!
One would think that military modelers might be interested in things related to the military. Besides, when I do my sniper diorama I can get the distance to scale. Anyone know off the top of their head how many inches equals 1,000+ yards in 1/35?
