Fired the 1000 yd match at Blackwater last summer, it was a blast just to see them pull the target and score it, seemed like forever waiting for the bullet to get there. Sam

In our Markmenship training we used the Standard Issue EBR, 22" Barrel with match ammo (can't recall grain, but i know we didn't have to de-link 'em haha), and I / we were consistently nailing man-size targets out to 1200 yards and vic-sized targets 1500 and 1800. That range is the day that I fell in love with the M14.

First time at 1k was at the pyramid lake range north of Reno nv in a long range match. The rest of the times with the m1a were at colinga ca. All of those were back in the 80's.

The furthest I've shot my M1A scout is 400 yrds, b/c that's the longest range I've ever been too. @ that range I could plink a 6" plate about 7 out of every 10 shots & a 12" plate almost all the time, with 168g Atomic Match ammo, no wind, off the bipod.

I'd like to find a range that goes out to a 1000 yrds & get some practice & learn how to shoot @ longer ranges; see how I do at 600, 800, & a 1000 yrds. Those type of ranges live far away from me though.

ive gone to 1000 and seen it was a waste of ammo. i have an 18" steel gong (18" is roughly the size of the chest to back on a mule deer, shoulder to shoulder on a man, snout to top of the head on an elk) you get the idea.
when i shot the 1000 yard line and getting 2 out of about 8 shots i moved closer to 800 which i can ring it 8 out of 10 times.

Longest shot with an M-14

1000 yards at Camp Perry numerous times and Rivolli Gun Club in Illinois. The rifle can do it but it needs a lot of work on the part of the gun, ammo and shooter. Iron sights only as I shot in the service rifle classification. This is very demanding and to be fair, the M14 would not be my first choice for anything beyond 600 yards.

10-12" steel plates at 600 yards. I'd go further if I had access to that range distance. It definitely gets exponentially more difficult every 100 yards past a certain point. That point varies between shooters. For me it gets real at 400 and beyond. Looking forward to 800-1000. Having fun with the whole math thing. Don't mind the technical talk. hehe
