What is “Extreme Long Range” versus “Long Range?”

Generally, mid-range shooting is considered 300 to 600 yards, 600 to 1,200 is considered long range and 1,200 yards to three miles is considered extreme long range. Sometimes the term “extended long range is used interchangeably with “extreme.”

  • Mid-Range: 300 to 600 yards
  • Long-Range: 600 to 1200 yards
  • Extreme Long Range: 1200 yards to Three+ miles

“Most serious long range shooters will disagree about the arbitrary distances I mention above, which is a good thing because it makes for excellent post-match arguments over burgers and beers.” –Shepard Humphries

Sneak peak:

Barrel life

Barrel life refers to how many shots the barrel can handle while remaining precise. When metal slides along metal, there is some wear, even with good quality barrels. “Barrel burners” are what we call calibers that shoot very fast bullets. A bullet with a muzzle velocity of 3,600 feet per second will wear out the barrel much more quickly than a 2,500 feet per second bullet. A high quality barrel shooting subsonic bullets might last over 10,000 shots while a barrel sending bullets at 4,000 feet per second might last less than 500 shots.
