It's like hitting a dime at 100 yards!
We all know Kendall Jones is a natural when it comes to proficiency with a firearm. So when she recently hit the range with the guys from The Best of the West and nailed a target from an astonishing 1,000 yards away, well, let's just say we weren't all that surprised.
Jones accomplished the feat on August 21 using a Bergara B14 HMR chambered in a 6.5 Creedmoor with a Vortex Optics 4-16x44 Viper and Silent Legion suppressor, and shooting a Sierra 142gr MatchKing. As for the 'bullseye'... it was approximately 5 x 5 inches.
For those wondering how far 1,000 yards is, it's the equivalent of 10 football fields long (not including end zones). Yes, that's more than half a mile in length!
Here's what Kendall posted to Facebook about her experience:
"My 1,000 yard shot from yesterday!! This target is 3x3 feet, and the instructor told us that hitting this bullseye is equivalent to hitting a dime at 100 yards! We have learned so much during this long range shooting school at @smoke_hole_outfitters with the guys from The Best of the West - such as bullet ballistics, wind compensation, minute of angle, altitude and temperature conditions plus SO much more. I didn't realize how much went into shooting long distance, it's so rewarding to see improvements in my shooting techniques and confidence! I can't wait for you guys to see the videos!"
Nice shooting, Kendall! We eagerly await the videos!
