    Just recently with the new Bengal out to 60 yards into the small block type target. I've always been a 40 yd. and under shooter because in my mind I was only focused on my hunting situations. But due to some of the conversation on this site I decided to stretch it a bit. It is a challenge. I'm working towards 80 yds. but it'll be a while.

    You may be the winner, that is pretty long. Much longer than 100 yards.

    Along that line, Bought my Darton Fury ( now ES's ) in 1972, and shot it last Nov.
    At targets, couldn't tell you how many times I've shot the 80 yd WU in a field round, but I do have my 4-20 pin for it. Back in the late 60"s, the wife and I went to a lot of novelty shoots, one of them, the Fresno Safari always had a clout shoot at about 140 yds, I always managed to hit it. In fact saw my first coupound there, and was amazed at how flat it shot, compared to the Hoyt Pro Metalist I was shooting. Longest shot with a compound was 103 yds at Babe, a 3D Blue elephant, just out of the kill.

    No problem. Get you a scuba tank and regulator. That way you'll be able to breathe no matter how deep it gets. It doesn't help with the smell though.

    I just recently moved my little black hole layered target out to 65 yards with the new Silencer. Groupings aren't too bad, but will be much better once my Smooth Stability stab arrives! Then I'll be shooting out to 80 yards, with some more practice
