Team Global Precision Group Hits 6012-Yard Target, by John Parker - Tuesday, March 5, 2019

In January, extreme long-range shooter and reigning NRA ELR National Champion Paul Phillips successfully hit a steel target at a distance of 3.4 miles, with the help of his Team Global Precision Group teammates. Watch the video above.

Gear for the 3.4-mile shot includes Phillips' rifle, which is chambered in .416 Barrett. The cartridges are a marriage of Vihtavuori 20N29 powder and 550-grain Cutting Edge laser bullets. This particularly potent combination of components provides the 3000-fps velocity needed for extreme long-range shooting.

Additionally, for comfort and added stability, Phillips was using the Crosstac Precision Long Range shooting mat. The mat is lightweight, carries bipod accessories and is easy to fold up for storage. It's also wider than most options, and in the words of Phillips himself the Crosstac mat is "very comfortable."
