farthest range for hunting about 500-600 yards/meters
Time of flight makes hunting with a 30-06 (and most other calibers, as well) at 500+ yards an iffy, and therefore unethical, proposition. You are looking at t.o.f. in excess of .5 sec past 500 ...... an animal can move much further than the the size of the kill zone in that amount of time, just by taking a step.....
