That’s a pretty elaborate way to say that I am right, and that ARs are not intended for long range.LOL..
The distances normally considered to be "long range" is weather and caliber dependent, and long range may be defined as stretching the distance which the firearm and ammunition is capable of making consistent hits. Generally some may claim that for the .22 LR cartridge any distances over 100 meters (109 yards) is considered long range. For centerfire intermediate rifle calibers, some might say that everything over 300 to 400 m is considered long range, while some may claim that long range "starts" at 500 m. At the longer ranges the bullets will have a long flight time, and on days with good weather conditions one can spot the bullets spinning through the air. Some believe you really get "the feel" of long range shooting when you have time to see the bullet fly towards the target, and then dive below or swing past, just when you were sure you would hit it. Weather conditions may also affect what is considered long range for a given firearm configuration. For instance a shooter may be able to repeatably hit a given size target, i.e. a 100 mm ring, at 1000 meters (0.1 mil target difficulty) in low and predictable wind, while the same 100 mm target may be near impossible to hit in heavy and varying wind at 200 meters (0.5 mil target difficulty).
In a few weeks we will be shooting a 200 yard rimfire match at Camp Atterberry how about you roll out here and show me how well you can dope the elevation and wind with your simple 22LR.
A huge gun owner like yourself should own a Kimber, Cooper or an Anschutz that's capable of sub 1" groups at 100.
I'll pay your entry fee's and you can shoot it and show me that you can walk the walk.
