Got a new record distance shot just today.

!00yds 24in barreled Bushy 69g Seirra Moly Match King VS. a Deer Fly.
It landed on my target sheet and got turned insideout. Great sport them flies.

I think i'll try a dragonfly on the wing later today with a 357 mag revolver.

We also have a huge semidomesticated herd of white tails tha frequent the grassy areas near the place where I work. I get out the wrist rocket and Some glass marbles and make the deer dance at about 60yds

For your on the wing shot w/ the revolver try loading shot in it I read about a guy shooting carpenter bees in his shed w/ #11 shot in his .44 mag I think. Never the less pretty cool.

I broke my past record in March of this year. I was prone, took 3 rds., 257 Weatherby, 100 gr. Nosler. On a Groundhog at 1111 yds. appox. I lazed the bush the groundhog came from into a field. It will be Summer until I'll get another chance at that distance.

200 yrd shot with a Taurus 6" revolver in .44 magnum and hit a 12" steel disc target hanging from chains at the range over open sights shooting 240gr JSP Winchester factory shells.
First shot fell well short....gave it about a 3 ft holdover and pretty soon...."PING"

Then theres the prairies where I sometimes shoot....

Hey Rick....you should have a go at shooting IHMSA (Handgun Silhouette). I used to shoot it regularly...Chickens at 50yds, Javelina at 100yds, Turkeys at 150yds and Big Horn Ram at 200yds.

Using my 10" BBL TC Contender in 30.30 Win, with open sights, I used to be able to shoot 5" groups at 200yds. I had to give it up when I couldn't see the sights properly...bloody eyes.

The handguns of choice back then were TC Contenders, XP100, a smattering of S&W Mod 29 in .44 Mag and plenty of Dan Wessons in .44 Mag.

Cheers, Vince
