Awesome! :cheers2:

The article was weak though... what I don't get is that each time there is a shot like this (they said it was 3 years in the making) they fail to get video. Not that I don't believe them but dang, we want to see it!! And the piece referenced the difficulty in documenting the shot. Video would help. ...lol

Yes - hard to get excited without video.

You know, at that angle of fire it's basically artillery.

You beat me to it. At 3 miles, mortars and artillery are called for. Plus, he got ONE hit out of EIGHT rounds fired. I don’t know what this is at this point, but it is not really a practical test of accuracy anymore. You throw enough bullets out there, and you’re bound to hit the board eventually.
