Just a quick question that is probably irrelevant - - -> In the hunting environment,what kind of rest(s) will be available for that "magical" 600yd shot ?? --- SAWMAN

hood of the truck is generally good for 600...can be a little hard to load the bipod...truck bed is good on high ground...easier to load the bipod prone too.

not sure I would try it with a mini 30 either

Guys, I’ve never shot anything beyond 100 yards. I just pulled the 600 yard number out of my a** because it was mentioned early in this thread so I ran with it. I don’t even have anywhere to practice beyond 100 yards right now. Like I said earlier, I’m an equivalent to a 5 year old in this area right now, but we all start somewhere. I wouldn’t take a long shot on an animal without being sure of my abilities.

that's the thing....it is really an outta the ass goal. If you consistently maintain a less than 1 MOA error at your 100 yard target you will most likely maintain the same error at 600. Once you have a better grasp on environmental factors you will be fine. Once you clean out the limits of your mind that is :)

I see no need to beat someone up about the distances they hunt. I find a contact shot with a pistol just as exciting as a 600 yard shot.

I agree with Jester. Your shot is your decission.
More than likely you will be alone.
More than likely you will have time to "ponder" the shot and its implications..
FOR ME - -> re. deer,bear,and moose - -> a 540yd deer was the only shot I have ever taken over ABOUT 400-425 or so.
Killed plenty of chucks and yotes though,using my 220Swift and a Weatherby MK V Accumark chambered in 30-378 Wby Mag >600yds.(Even a deer 3 clubs over)
My (personal) definition of a long shot is >600yds. A shot farther than that on any game animal,I would need/want a bench and bags.
YOUR CHOICE ---- SAWMAN

I have a "hood of my truck" bag that is kept behind the drivers seat of my past and present truck.
Used to use a Harris but found this bag to be more stable and no adjustments needed.
Killed many animals with it and burned several truck hood paint jobs with it. Now just throw an old towel under the muzzle end.
Last kill was with my Ruger #1,45-70,350gr, at about 85yds. --- SAWMAN
