    Airgun doubters watch this. Your LR efforts are on notice! 1000y on a 2L softdrink

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E6BK8p6BMRU

    This is either the finest fitting of a scope / best shot ever taken / most still wind / act of God OR it is an absolute hoax. What say you people?

    Btw I worked out he'd have needed 56m of holdover if zero'd at 100y to hit that 2L coke bottle at 1000y. I have expert advice that this wasn't a hoax and he's apparently a kick arse F-class shooter as well as an airgun trailblazer. If its real, I put it forward that this is the best shot I have ever seen.

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    I have no trouble believing the projectile will easily reach that far if you read the ballistics.
    Hitting what you're aiming at there will be luck but I'd guess he's previously zeroed and tested the gun a lot.
    If you look at how elevated the muzzle is, that'd correspond to what the OP calculated.

    I'd guess many of you guys haven't used a decent PCP air rifle. Grab the opportunity if you ever get the chance. My 40 ft-lb .22 AirWolf routinely takes starlings out of the macrocarpa at 80+yds, in fact I'd say if there's no wind, I have better than an 80% chance of stoning one first shot. Magpies are easy at that distance.

    Real guns start with the number 3 or bigger and make two holes, one in and one out." -

    Its so hard to believe because most airguns use shuttlecock looking skirted pellets. He's using cast solid slugs that are lobbed up at 35deg.

    I'll bring Brendan (ClarkArms) up to the next long range event and we'll see if his 20cal rifle can replicate that shot.
    First problem, what the hell is that mount the guy is using? Brendan would need assistance with the optics but his custom made Airguns are as powerful / accurate as the one shown.
    I've seen his 50cal cloverleaf at 100m

    I timed from the report to the hit (badly) and got 1.65 seconds. Plus the 2.7 seconds the sound takes to travel from the airgun to the target, the projectile was in the air for about 4.34 seconds. That's an average of about 690 fps.

    Sounds about right to me, and you won't get sort of delay between the report and the hit unless you're at very silly range with subsonics.

    One, which was a miss on the steel plate as he explained. The bottle was placed next to it for a size comparison.
