i was just wondering what were some of the longest shots and with what rifle you made these shots with on deer. i know that most shots on deer are at fairly close range especially in my home state of arkansas but some of you guys live and hunt the wide open spaces where long shots are the norm. personally, my longest shot was 525 yds and i was using a remington 760 pump in 30/06. i shot with a hunting coat as a rest across the hood of my truck. guessed the holdover for that range and let it fly---hit the 6 pointer high and broke his back but was aligned perfectly over the heart and lungs. pretty good for a 22 inch barreled rifle.
