There have been lots of cases out west where guys have successfully engaged targets out to 90 yards (270 feet). Velocity, ammo, hop-up are the keys there.

I've gotten kills at 70-80 yards at sub-420 fps, or at 550 fps out to 110 yards, give or take.

With an M700 at 650+++ fps, perhaps even a bit more than that.

Democracy is two wolves and a sheep discussing what's for dinner.

Freedom is the wolves limping away while the sheep reloads.

Never confuse freedom with democracy.
