Heck I can’t see that far much less waste good ammo.

He's good! There are some out there that can really make your jaw drop with some of the shots they pull off.

Joe isn't long range shooting one of your hobbies?? (Don't know if it would be considered a hobby or not)

Yes but I ain't worth a flip. I shoot with some people who keep me humbled. Some of the shots I've seen them make are simply mind boggling. I find it interesting just seeing what is possible and when you add consistency to this then you can see how high the bar is and I recognize I'll ever get anywhere near their level. Its fun though. Even if it is often a very humbling experience.
