Shooting 1760 Yards (One Mile) With The Remington MSR

Shooting 1760 yards (one mile) is not anything to sniff at. 1760 yards is a rather long way off for even the most experienced of shooters much less a shooter who has only shot past 1000 yards once prior. In this episode of TFB TV, Patrick takes a Remington MSR on loan from DSG Arms out to Outback Precision Rifle Club to get some expert instruction from Geordie. With proper instruction and a skilled spotter, long range shooting can be a very rewarding shooting discipline.

If you enjoyed our coverage of long range shooting let us know in the comments. There will be a full review of the Remington MSR chambered in .338 Lapua coming soon.

    I can’t believe he hit anything without a 6.5 CM. Everyone knows that is impossible.

  • Rob

    What size target plate at 1 mile?

    • Patrick R. – Senior Writer

      About 18″ x 24″, It was a steel IPSC target.

      • Rob

        1 moa x 1.5 moa at 1 mile. Nice shooting.

  • D

    I shot 14-inch wide plates with a 308 at a Todd Hodnett class, yup, 308 It was freaking awesome

  • Linehand

    And that’s why you can not get to a leprechauns pot of gold.

  • gordon

    Watching other people shoot at a range is about as much fun as watching other people bowl or golf. I am glad he had fun and learned something but entertainment it is not.

    • Nandor

      I have 2 small kids which lets me get out of the house to shoot once every never. This was as good as it gets for me, so I say keep it coming!

      • GaryOlson

        Convince your local range to create a toddlers range — Nerf at 3 yards.

    • jonp

      I watch other people curling.

  • USMC03Vet

    Eat your heart out, STA PLT or more specifically Miles…..

  • FarmerB

    “Outback” was a hint – but then he opened his mouth. Definitely Aussie.

    • Peter Nissen

      Yup! Clearly an Expat. Lucky Bastard – and we Aussies mean that in a “nice” sorta way…

      • jonp

        Nothing wrong with being an ex-pat. I’ve met them all around the world from a lot of countries. It’s all good as long as you don’t forget where your from

  • Avid Fan

    Grab it by the barrel and swing for the fences!

  • TDog

    When a manufacturer or supplier loans out a firearm for these sorts of reviews or demonstrations, what do they do with it after they get it back? Do they continue to send it out as a sample or do they clean it up and try to sell it as “like new”?

    • Patrick R. – Senior Writer

      This was a used gun that was loaned to me. Since it was used when it was offered for sale initially I imagine they will continue to sell it as used. Most of the time the guns we are sent come from a pool of marketing guns that are never sold to a consumer.

      • TDog

        Cool. Thanks. I always wondered what dealers did with those guns. Now I know! 😀

        • Patrick R. – Senior Writer

          Not a problem. It really depends on how the gun came into a writer’s possession and what it is.

      • jonp

        I checked out the gun online. $7,000 seemed on the far side of ridiculous to me for some odd reason.

  • Havok

    Not sure how I’m the first one to say it but….”WHAT’S IN THE BOX!”
