    Texas : 1MOA at 2 miles / 3.3km

    RATON, NM — Billy Carter, a native of Spring, Texas, hit a 1 MOA target from a distance of 2.07 miles at the NRA Whittington U Long Distance Range last week. Carter improved the accuracy of his 2013 record, shooting a CheyTac USA M200 Intervention® chambered in .375 CheyTac topped with a Vortex Razor HD Gen1 scope.

    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

    Yeah I've seen a few threads on other forums, but overall I'm inclined to believe, there doesn't seem any point these days making shit up and get the 6 guys involved to keep it a secret.

    Dude posted about it on SH, had something like a 120moa mount

    Was set up as promo shit for cheytac basically iirc

    Sling enough lead at something and you'll eventually hit it, even at 2 miles

    Go make 3 foot square, put it at 3300 meters look thru a 25x scope at it............
    But as gimp said sling enough lead you may hit it...... It's a bit different two actually hitting it first up

    First round hits are where it's at!

    There is not a single detail about the shot taken in that link that adds up.

    Triple yeah nah.

    Don't forget it is advertising....

    Last year/last time they got all excited & bent out of shape because "one" of the shooters with "one" shot somehow managed to hit a 12 foot square, 3.66 meters square (a bloody big barn door), this time one of them managed to hit a smaller target, as has been mentioned, spray & pray especially with the platforms & calibres they are shooting....

    3643 yards is a bloody long way.......

    They aren't claiming a first round hit. He was initially hitting a 4moa target, shifted to a 1moa and hit it twice out of eight shots. Maybe he got lucky twice???

    I do agree with Gimp, throw enough shots at something and chances are you'll hit it. But then if you do, you've got some bragging rights, which seems to be the case in this matter.

    At that range, you'd be wanting your spotter to be well versed in the art of calling the fall of shot. It would give you an advantage if the target was lying back at say, 45 deg otherwise your effective target is a LOT smaller than say a 3mx3m plate on the vertical due to the angle of trajectory at arrival at the target. So there are little ways to make it more achievable but still a bloody big ask...
