    Don’t know all the ins-and-outs of bench rest but I thought this was impressive enough to share

    Anyone who has ever seriously studied a 1000 yard target through a riflescope knows how unbelievable that score is. I will admit to having been away from the game for many years - I had no idea that something like the .300 WSM played any role.

    A 10 shot group under 3 inches is pending world record. This additional record of 100 points with 10X will stand forever.

    Super shooting. Congratulations.

    10 shoot groups mean a lot of time for wind to change, barrel heat level to change etc.

    Many of the 1,000 yard clubs shoot 5 round groups and the 5 round record is under 1.5" in both the IBS and NBRSA sanctioning bodies.

    When we look at old articles and feel smart because our groups are smaller, we are not accounting for the old timers' habit of shooting ten shot groups. Sure, bullets and barrels are better, but we are also shooting half as many of them. Or less; I see a lot of brag targets with three shots.

    When I opened this thread and saw 10x-100 I was like "and people have been doing that for years ... " and then I saw the size of that BR target.

    That's a far cry from getting a 10x-100 in an f-class or palma match.

    That X-ring is *ridiculously* small.

    By comparison 1,000 yard f-class targets have a 10" x-ring. The x-ring AND 10 ring are pretty much the same size of his entire target.

    That target he's holding up looks comparable to an MR52, which is what we use to simulate a 500 yard midrange target at 200 yards on a reduced range NRA high power shooting event.

    I shoot high master in f-class - but that guy's group at 1,000 yards looks like my normal group at 300 yards!

    Outstanding shooting.

    @Trent

    From one dirty "F'er" to another, you're absolutely right, that is ridiculously small. What I'm going to say in no way diminishes his achievement.

    Comparing F Class to bench rest is hard to do for one primary difference: F Class has to wait on pit service between shots and the stool shooters can let multiple shots fly when conditions are favorable.

    With that said, the current F Class 1,000 yard record is an astonishing 200 - 22x. That's 22 shots inside 5", and waiting 5-6 seconds between shots, if pit service is good.

    http://bulletin.accurateshooter.com/2018/09/best-ever-1000-yard-records-set-at-2018-f-class-nationals/

    Both of these records may never be broken

    The IBS BR 600 yard 10 ring is 2.8 x ring is 1.2

    I think it looks smaller every year. Lol

    Having shot some F class, I think the F-T/R record of 200 17X may be even more impressive. Hard holding with a .308 on a bipod.

    2.8125" at 1000 yards just under 0.28 MOA.

    Having trouble getting that to sink in.

    Hell of a lot easier to manage that MOA at 100, 200, even 300 yards (and that's still a hell of a task)

    1000 yards? Man, oh man.

    The best 10 shot group I ever put out with my competition rifle was 0.24 MOA on a 10 shot string at 300 yards in a practice session before a competition weekend. And that was *perfect* conditions, absolutely calm, and probably my best day ever shouldering a rifle.

    There is absolutely zero chance I could do that at 1,000 yards. Zero.

    None, nadda, zip, zilch.

    The variables all get logarithmically worse (or nearly so) as you get further downrange. A *tiny* difference in wind at any point along that trajectory and you're way off at the terminal end.

    The best part is this is NOT the type of rifle that they want to ban. Let that sink in! Awesome shooting.

    My hats off to all who shoot 1000yrds continuesly.
    I tried to shoot 1000yrds with a 30-06, I was shooting at 2x4 steel, I was able to hit a 12" plate at 600yrds but it took 8 rnds to hit steel at 1000, and I couldn't do it repeatedly, maybe set it on its side to help with the wind , I'm looking forward to trying it again and taking notes like I've done for 600yrds. We usually just have a cookout and shooting weekend when we set up our long range rifle targets.
