This was posted on the "Firing Line" :

New 1000 yd Service Rifle Record
SSG Chris "Wild Bill" Hatcher shot a 200-7x to win and set a new Interservice 1000 yard service Rifle record. The old record was 199-7x.

Since Interservice is not considered an NRA match, Hatcher's record is not an official NRA record; it is, however, to my knowledge the only 200 ever fired with a Service Rifle.

...BTW he did it with his AR15...


I tried to confirm this, but I can't find any info on the Web. Anybody hear anything about this? Pretty damn impressive, at any rate. I believe the 10 ring is 20" in diameter (somebody correct me if I'm wrong) for a 1000 yd target. This means Hatcher put twenty shots inside 20" (with aperture sights) from the prone position!

That's shootin' Baby! Now why wasn't that ever done with an M14?

If its true, he was probably using single loaded 90gr bullets that won't fit in a magazine.

Still it would be a better performance than any 30cal service rifle has turned.
