Approximately 200yds I hit a one gallon milk jug with one shot from my SAR-8, iron sights. I was, of course, bracing myself up on a stump.

What do you seasoned sharp shooters think?

While not a sharpshooter, I guess I'm seasoned (read old). Sounds good to me for what you've got and its originally intended purpose. I'd be satisfied with that sort of performance.

Good, now hopefully people will stop saying I can't hit the broad side of a barn.

I've got to create an elite name for myself...how about...Sniper Bob

Don't get cocky!! A guy with the name "Sniper Bob" should be able to shoot the cap off a milk jug at 200 yards.......


....and then put it back on with a follow up shot!

You forgot the part about being able to pour himself a drink with the first shot.

hahahahhahah

Don't yank my chain, I hate that.

200yds with a .308 makes the milk gallon go boom.

And this is what I do when I miss it:

if you can hit a milk jug at 200 with iron sights, you are a good shot and should be called:

milkjug

One shot only counts if you can do it over and over and over again.

Put those milk jugs at unknown ranges, rig it so they move at a slow/medium/brisk walk pace and pop it over and over and over again with one shot. Then when you're happy and content,... replace the mild jugs with soda cans.... then with a baseball, then golf balls (not that a SAR8 could reliably hit it- but the practice is good) etc......

Never be happy with what you can do. You can always do better with practice.
