This guy is using FTX 325 to shoot at a distance of 1 mile (a skosh over, actually, at 1806 yards). He never quite hits the 2' x 2' square target, but he comes pretty close.

Given that he's compensating with about 550 - 600 feet of holdover and about 100 feet of wind drift, I'd say missing a 2 foot target by a couple whiskers, from a mile away, still counts as a hit.

All I see is a black box??

As an aside, in the early 2000's, there was a one mile black powder and lead bullet cartridge match in Wyoming -- the "Wasserburger Mile." Montana Vintage Arms developed a long range sight with 414 MOA elevation and 88 MOA for wind to acquire the target shooting black powder and lead bullets.

Good shooting especially with the old school equipment. As a service rifle shooter using modern equipment I can vouch that even hitting the 600 yrd target is a challenge. He might have made some hits if he was shooting prone but that is real good for standing.

Dang good for shooting from standing position, gday mate!
That's about as close to pure Quigley shooting as you can get. Might have been a little more interesting if he'd been shooting a Sharp's. But doing it with a Marlin...crazy town.

This guy actually does a lot of very long range shooting. He has a 375 Cheytac with video of shooting 5000 yards, if my memory serves.

Pretty darn good shooting for off hand with the 45-70.
