    Theres actually more to the challenge. There is a weight limit on rifles, so no crazy mounted race guns :mamoru:

    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 :o

    I'm man enough to say I could never do it :) (Besides, all I have is a 30-06 bolt action)

    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

    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.

    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 could probably do it with my 870 Express shooting 3" slugs, but the rules say "rifle", so it probably wouln't count...

    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. :eek3:













    just kidding, that's a hell of a challenge
