20 shots inside a 20 inch circle in 20 seconds.....
[at 1000 yards]
Not with any of my current rifles, and I'll need a better rest then sandbags
Theres actually more to the challenge. There is a weight limit on rifles, so no crazy mounted race guns
I like this quote of his:
please. i'll not only do that in 20 seconds, but i'll do it TWICE. with my new USP 9mm
For $5K? Somebody would probably have that into practice ammo alone...
What caliber do you think people would go after that with? Isn't most competitve shooting at those distances usualy .30-06 or .308? I don't think you could control recoil well enough with either of those rounds to land 20 in 20 seconds.
Depending on the rifle its out of 308 can be pretty tame, 2 calibers I have that could probably do it 30-06, and 7.62x54r but I dont think I could do it with the rifles I have in those calibers, definently not the bolt 30-06, pop off the rounds reload, repeat, no way. TIGR would require 1 mag change but I still couldnt do it with that in the time allotted.
I can't figure what you would use to do that, it'd have to be a semi-auto, with 20 round mag, in a caliber whose recoil wouldn't throw you off target after each shot (depending on gun weight limitations).
Man, that's some shit
I'm man enough to say I could never do it (Besides, all I have is a 30-06 bolt action)
springfield m14, ar15s seem like the only thing that could do it. you wouldnt really have to reload....i dont know what else could do it
Knight's Mk 11 Mod 0 SR25 would and has done it, repeatedly (guaranteed 1moa at 1000yds requirement)
All you need to do to get one is pass Seals training for their sniper position.
But then you would probably need about 6 grand to buy a weapon to win 5 grand back on, lol
What exactly are the conditions to this challenge?
ugh, neither nor.
maybe a TRG-44 or an accuracy international super magnum, and those are still bolt actions.
you think the .223 from an AR-15's going to stretch out that accurate to 1k yds? even a .308 from a military rifle that you'd be hard pressed to get 1/2 MOA out of a match grade one?
pretty sure you could do it with either of those with the right set up. he didnt say shoot 1/2 moa at 1000 yards. he said hit a 20 inch circle.
1/2 MOA at 1000 yds is a 10" circle so shooting consistent 1 MOA'll put you within the target size. anything over that, a cunt hair of muzzle movement, you'll be out.
what do you think the wind drift on a .308 is at that distance?
bullet drop is over 200 inches.
i'm not even going to get into .223.
edit: i'm not saying it can't be done, you can hit targets w/ .308 at that distance. but with a military grade rifle (even if custom), and within 20 seconds, i don't think so.
probably take the bullet the better part of a second just to reach the target.
Springfield M25 White Feather maybe?
its still an M14 action. i don't think that'll do it either.
honestly, i just don't think .308 is a good round for something like this where every shot counts.
i dont like you, but the cunt hair movement part made me lol, thanks
what about 338 lapua or whatever? i dont know anything about this cartridge, im asking
I could probably do it with my 870 Express shooting 3" slugs, but the rules say "rifle", so it probably wouln't count...
i don't like you either, but here's a few links:
and barrett's semi auto chambered in it:
.50 didnt Hathock use a modified M2 to make like a 1800 meter shot in vietnam? if you can get a secure rest setup shouldnt be a problem, beltfed and i assume modified to fire semi
I could do it...and not only could I do it in a 20 inch circle, I'll go the extra distance to do it in a 3 inch circle.
just kidding, that's a hell of a challenge
