Kalispell, MT –-(Ammoland.com)- Most folks don’t realize you can shoot long range with a red dot sight.
Go back in time to frontier America and the buffalo hunters regularly made kill shots, with open sights, at vast distances. For my experiment, I headed out to the Nemo Arms range to try my luck with their new Omen 300 win mag AR style rifle topped with an Aimpoint Hunter Sight.
Boy was I in for a treat. I’ll add, shooting long range necessitates a full understanding of the ammunition, bullet and shooting characteristic of your rifle.
This video does not promote long range shooting without serious testing of your ammunition and rifle. It is not meant to promote shooting big game at long range, either. Enjoy.
