That simply amazes me, that you guys can find places like that to shoot. Down here in north Louisiana, a long shot is 250 yards. The longest shot I can find on land that's available to me is 287 yards, as measured by a surveyor.
I've fired over 1000 yards on tank ranges, but we were using very good fire control, very good rangefinders, and very good tanks. Trying to make those same shots with my hunting rifle would seem like an exercise in futility.
I really need to get out West more, and stretch my rifle and my optics.
