I want Jerry's job. But as he says: "in order to be the best you have to be the first one at the range and the last one to leave"

Anyone in need of someone to shoot 1k rounds per day for them?:)

How far off the steel do you have to aim to hit that with a pistol from that far?
Not sure with 45 ACP, but with 9mm, you have to hold a couple feet high. 300 yards, somewhere around 4 or 5 feet high (I did some plinking at a cut I-beam at that distance off a table a couple years ago, and that's about how high I had to hold to hit/get close to it. I did manage to hit it a couple times, but again, I was resting the pistol. I don't think I would stand a chance not resting it)

Well I guess you would have to judge 32.2 inches roughly above the target at 200 yards since a 45 auto drops 16.1 inches at a 100 yards
It becomes difficult since the bullet is slowing down, but for part of the path to reach 200, you have to aim high. I don't feel like doing the math (even for constant velocity), but maybe someone else will :mrgreen:
