so much for "needing" more range than the 400m any decent AR -223 offers. What u long range wannabees are is fos.

First of all, it isn't realistic for a number of reasons. It's childish.andy said:My $5000 to YOUR $500 says that you can't hit 5 out of 5 tries, 12" X 24" mark, 400m, using a battle auto, from sitting, using backpack as a rifle rest. 1 shot on each occasion, each location. March 15, 5pm, OKC. Jan 1st, 9 am, Bangor, Maine. 4pm, August 15, Death Valley, Rainy season, Seattle,WA, 5Pm. Jan 15, 9 am, Butte, Montana.
Prone often wont let you get a clear shot, so the sitting position is the only truly practical one. only an idiot risks having nothing but a bolt action. I LET you have match ammo (that you probably WONT have) LET you use a fragile scope sight, LET you know the range, use a STATIONARY target, LET you use earprotection, noone will be firing at you,before or after the shot. No need to escape. I LET you be fully rested, fed, hydrated, no dysentery or depression (as is nearly always the case in long term combat or survival conditions) 440 yds, not the bs half mile many CLAIM effectivenesst-to. 5 places in the US, all COMMONLY encountered, with commonly encountered conditions of wind, snow, fog, mirage, heat, cold. NOBODY's ever taken me up on this bet, cause they KNOW that they CAN'T win. Much of US, MUCH of the time, offers EXACTLY the same problems with getting long range hits. The above condiitons are thus VERY realistic, and you wont DIE for having missed, as is quite likely if you try the same thing post shtf.
