    just for fun
    would you call this a hit or a miss? (the mark on the side)

    Was shot from 200m with a Weatherby Vanguard in 243 using pmc 100gr spitzers. first shot was a little high because I expected the bullet to drop more.

    That's a hit in my book, but not a very exciting one!

    I'll go with a hit, though not a lethal one on this fell beast of an opponent!

    it did have to touch the bottle to do what it did so i would say a hit, but if i did that i would be pissed and keep going at it until i got it real good!

    If it were a person you shot at, the police paper work would say some had been shot, not shot at

    This is just like a foul ball in baseball... you hit it sure... but it didn't count for much. :)

    Perhaps, under combat philosophy. Had you hit it in the center, it would have bled out and died. Now it is only wounded and two other bottles will have to disengage in order to help this one get back to the rear.

    If it was a miss, how is the bottle marked??

    If it was shooting back, it would be a miss:evil: though.

    if this was paper, you would cut the line, so it is a hit, no doubt.

    I wish I could shoot that good. It takes a lot of talent to hit a bottle at 200 yd. and just cut the outside of the plastic so that the liquid won't leak. In my country the riflemen used to hit the bark under a squirrel so they didn't destroy any meat. The concussion brought the squirrel down. They also used to tie a turkey down behind a log and shoot his head off. This was with flintlocks too.:cool:

    That's a great precision shot mate.:D
