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.
