On September 28th, 2014 a team from Hill Country Rifles joined with expert instructors from FTW Ranch to attempt a 3600 yard shot onto a 36” steel target. At more than 2 miles, it will take the bullet a full 7.2 seconds to reach the target.
New Jersey native Jim Spinella is not a stranger to long distance shooting, but this shot would be a new personal record. One that few would ever consider attempting.
