At the local range there is a 500 meter iron sight shoot in the morning. I currently have a Bushmaster 16" carbine. Is it even capable at that range. I have never been to a meet so i dont know target size. I am sure its fairly good sized seeing that it is open sights. The only question other than the guns ability is my eyes.

Should i compete or just watch this one and see how it goes. Wait till i get a longer range rifle.

Once you figure out the elevation (hold over), you ought to be able to hit 18" squares at 500 yards with your Bushmaster.

a 16" Bushy will do just fine at 500...with open sights I have picked off sodas can at 150........at 500, a life size silloutte is realisitic.
