I imagine there would be a fairly good number of hits if it was at 1K, but once you start getting into the 1300 and 1400 yard distances, I would expect that hit ratio to go quite a bit lower.
I think it would be cool, but I would not expect the first attempt, completely cold bore for everyone would not have a high hit ratio.


I’ve not encountered one at 1000, but 500-700 regularly

Also,

Anyone who kills an animal at long range is usually firing a cold bore shot.

If your rifle doesn’t put the cold bore shot in the group you fire, your barrel sucks

So, CTC, how big is the 69 shot group?

I think they can do it in 68 shots if they just go to a 30 ft target.

i kinda feel only the 1st shot should count as a record , Carlos Hathcock set records with his 1st shot against the enemy when he made the kill shot. really his records have not been beat when you count the 1st shot. > 69 shots that`s ridiculous !

69 shots. Kind of a meaningless record. Any one of us could have done it with a good spotter.

Warming the barrel for hunting shots makes for more of a challenge..... generally speaking if your first shot when hunting isn't true , the rest of your shots are worse.

Dang, I've not read the article, but the sound should have arrived at the target about 4 seconds before the bullet.

Count me in the group of people who aren't that impressed. I'm sure this is monumentally difficult but it doesn't feel that on purpose if you take 69 tries to get it.

Carlos Hathcock and his rifle were a really good man/machine combination where the ranges were unknown and there was always the possibility he was being targeted too. BUT he wasn’t shooting at over 4 miles.

I imagine Hathcock could pull off the 4+ mile shot too with a few tries.

Don't miss the forest for the trees fellas. While that many shots doesn't sound great, I'd imagine the shooter is back on the bench trying to figure out how to cut it down. Gotta start somewhere.

The fact that he even hit the target is amazing. Many bullets totally loose accuracy when transitioning from supersonic to subsonic

IMHO, pointless exercise in ego building. That's mortar country.
