    Amazing what these old war horses are capable of in standard configuration - no custom match grade barrels or custom fitted and bedded stocks, etc..

    That's so wild that he shoots, then slowly chambers the next round before the bullet even reaches the target.

    So, at this distance, the sound of the explosion (at the rifle) has overtaken the bullet, correct?

    Per the article: dozens of shots and 4 hits.

    What are the "rules" about a record shot? I'd think making the shot on-demand or with some notable frequency would be required. Sounds like it takes multiple mag changes for one hit.

    Still, 1.25 miles or so... that is freaking far.

    I believe so since he talks about the bullet slowing down to sub-sonic speed. At that point I would say the sound overtakes the bullet.

    One of the holes looked like the bullet may have been tumbling at that point, too.

    Again, not ideal in practice, but a heck of an accomplishment!

    Depends on how long the bullet's subsonic and how long it spent supersonic. If it spends 2000yds supersonic and 200 subsonic, it'll take some time for the muzzle blast to overtake it. The wake/bow wave overtakes it right when it crosses below the sound barrier but the muzzle report has to catch up.

    I would like to know the rules or whatever also. I don't know any ranges that have that yardage but it sure sounds like fun.
    I have a swiss,a mauser 98 and a swede that I would love to try.
