455 yard on a 14 gong with a non magnified red dot in fading light and 20kt cross wind from a bag. One of the longest shots I've ever taken.

Other fun one, though not a rifle was a 20" gong at 185 yards. Landed the first shot with my 5" 629 in 44 mag. My buddy thought I was gonna jump 10 feet in the air after that one

My best were offhand shots. 115 yards off hand at a huge 9 point buck. Field dressed at 213 lbs. 12 gauge Remington 1100.

The other was approaching an antelope I'd dropped at over 300 yards with a .243 and old cheap scope. Got within 100 yards and it jumped up to escape. Shouldered and fired as fast as I could to prevent a loss and made a head shot while it was moving. Dad thought I was messing my pants after making that shot.
