500 Yards with a .22LR Pistol

    Just when you think Jerry Miculek was the king of long range handgun shots, YouTuber 22 Plinkster has taken it up a notch with a smaller round. Using a Colts Woodsman and 36-grain Federal Champion (HP) ammunition, he hits a torso-sized steel plate at 500 yards.

    Its highly entertaining and I don’t doubt he did indeed shoot it knowing his other shots, but how many takes did it take? The velocity alone would likely cause huge differences in drops shot-to-shot.

    Regardless, give the man mad props. I have a hard time hitting said target with a 5.56 A2 from the standing and I was a Marine Rifle Expert.
