Story based on report by Sam Hall
Look at that target by Mike Wilson. This is one of the most remarkable displays of accuracy (and precision) in the history of long range shooting. This past weekend, Mike (aka “GA. Dawg” in our Forum) drilled a truly spectacular 1.068-inch, 5-shot group at 1000 yards, all centered up in the X-Ring. Yes, you read that right, a group barely over an inch at 1000, shot in competition at an official IBS benchrest match on July 21, 2018.
How small is that in angular measurement? Well 1 MOA at 1000 yards is 10.47 inches, so Mike’s 50-5X masterpiece is 0.102 MOA! Yes that will be pending IBS group size (and score) World Records. This best-ever 1K group* was shot at an IBS registered 1000-yard match at Hawks Ridge Gun Club in North Carolina. Other records have been shot at Hawks Ridge in the past, but this is the most jaw-dropping.
Sam Hall, past IBS National Champion and IBS 600-Yard Shooter of the Year, was stunned by Wilson’s accomplishment: “This is a truely awesome marksmanship feat — one of the best in history. I think I would trade all 14 of my 600-yard records for that one!”. Mike’s amazing target will be submitted for approval as new Group Size and Score IBS World Records. Official approval is pretty much a certainty. The previous 5-shot, 1000-yard IBS record is 1.397″ (50 score) by Tom Sarver in 2007. (The NBRSA 1000-Yard 5-shot LG record is 1.473″ by Bill Schrader in 2002.)

Wow. There are days when I'd be very happy with a 1" group at 100 yards. I suck.
The shooter used a 6mmBR Ackley Improved. I guess them thar 6mm chambers work after all.

That’s insane. Wow.
|Go ahead punk, make my day|
Waiting for people to complain it's not a 10-round group.
I've shot at Hawks Ridge many times but never like that! Congrats in order for sure.
Me too but I have a hell of a lot of fun shooting my 5" groups at 100yds anyway.
Wow! That's some nice shooting!
I'm not sure I could poke holes in paper with a pencil with such precision.
Oh, by the way, which one's "Pink?"

Pshaw, that's nothing.
Just kidding, that is seriously awesome.

Wow. I am impressed.
The fish is mute, expressionless. The fish doesn't think because the fish knows everything.
Three cheers for Georgia Dawg!
Congratulations to Georgia Dawg...outstanding.
Pshh, I'd be embarrassed by that flier in the top right.
The moons aligned that day! Well Done!

With a rifle that looks like you can pick it up and put it away...not some !00# monster you need to call friends to help with.
After the game, the King and the pawn go into the same box.
That's incredible. Way to go GA DAWG!
