The fellas down at Hill Country Rifles are about to show you what a 3,800 yard shot looks like.

So the guys over at Hill Country Rifles weren’t satisfied with only having a 3,600 (about 2.04 miles) under their belt, so they decided to go for 3,800 yards (about 2.16 miles). And they made it. The shot was made with a .375 CheyTac rifle and the flight time of the round was over 7.4 seconds.

On June 20th, 2015, Jim Spinella and the HCR team hit a 36” plate from a remarkable distance of 3800 yards (2.16 miles). The shot was made with the Hill Country Rifle Extreme Long Range Carry Weight 375 CheyTac at the FTW Ranch in Texas. This new rifle weighs 12.5 pounds without the scope. This shot is said to be a new world record. We will settle for a fun one.
