1397611476113

Billy Carter, from Texas, hit a 1 MOA target from 2.07 miles at the NRA Whittington U Long Distance Range!

He used a CheyTac USA M200 Intervention® chambered in .375 CheyTac topped with a Vortex Razor HD Gen1 scope.

408-M200-Intervention

 

Last year he used the .375 CheyTac and hit the 2.07 Mile target at a 4 MOA target. This time he did some test runs on the 4 MOA but stepped up and asked for the 1 MOA target. It took 8 shots but he connected with the 3×3 ft steel target. Velocity on impact was 1008 ft/s. Very, very impressive.

    Cool, Can be this will entering Guinness World Record ?

    Just punched the terminal velocity and bullet weight into an impact energy calculator. At that range, the 350-grain bullet is delivering ~790 foot-pounds of energy. That’s hitting harder than most (any?) .357 Magnum load at the muzzle.

    So at 2 miles, this rifle is hitting you harder than if someone shot you at point-blank range with a .357 Magnum. Pretty amazing.

    Imagine a CheyTac system combined with one of those “won’t fire until it’s on the target” systems…. (I can’t think of the name at the moment)…. integral ballistics computer and fire control. Records be damned.

      TrackingPoint is the system you are thinking of.

      Only bad thing about that is your entire shot from time, place, date, temp, name ect is recorded. I guess if you enjoy no privacy and have no modesty it’s a great thing. One couldn’t break any records as the tech is not allowed in any NRA or other shooting competitions which record records. Kinda like Bonds on steroids and no baseball hall of fame.

    Damn, the ammo is $7 a round. I’ll stick with 7.62×39 :)

  • claymore

    That is awesome shooting no matter how you cut it.

    Was this with Cheytac’s neutered civilian rifle?

    • Russ McCarthy

      The CheyTac M200 weighs in at 31lbs. with a 29″ barrel. Doesn’t sound neutered to me.

      • Rusty Shackleford

        He is referring to this:
        From the Cheyenne Tactical website:The CheyTac M-200 changed the world of military sniper deployment and took on all competitors breaking the Best Group All Distance World’s Record. Since that time consumers have wanted the M-200 but we at CheyTac Associates have a duty to those who serve and as such we never want our incredible technology to fall into the wrong hands. Therefore we developed the M-200 CIV to have the same look and feel of the Military version but in a package that keeps the extreme distance edge with the front line forces of the US and our allies. See the Press Release when we introduced the M-200 CIV.
        What’s the point of buying a neutered rifle for 14,000 dollars?
        Yet another reason why they went bankrupt.

          I like how the press release implies that American civilians are the “wrong hands”.

          • dan

            I don’t think that is what they were implying. I think they were implying that they didn’t want one of their guns being sold at Joe’s gun shop and funneled overseas to be used against our boys. In probably at tad on the side of stupid idea but hey whatever I couldn’t justify buying either model so no loss to me

    • 11b

      Walk shots in! Had me cracking up lmao

    • 1leggeddog

      If walk in shots takes too long, use more russians with more rifles

  • avconsumer2

    That’s why I say “Hey man, nice shot. What a good shot man.”

  • walter12

    Incredible, if true, but what would such a weapon cost? And my God, each shot would be a fortune in itself.
