    One quickly notes that he did not shoot the cylinder full of 8 rounds at it. Smart men know when to quit.
    I will guarantee out of two cylinder fulls of ammo he could hit it far more than most of us though.
    How many rounds, if any, did he fire in preperation for the filming?
    When Bob Munden hit that steel plate with his 44 Mag how many shots did he shoot walking them in before the actual hit segment? I think the show showed him shooting only two rounds.I called him shortly after that was on TV and he walked them in. We didnt see that on TV.
    I am not trying to be a spoil sport but just looking at reality.

    Wow, second shot he hits it. The guy is a freak. Interesting how flat he seems to be pointing it.

    Apologies if this was already posted.
    We Know Mass Cannot Be Weighed But It Has Newtonian Weight And That Is Derived From Kilograms And Kilograms Can Be Converted to Pounds. But, Still Mass Cannot Be Weighed. But How is the kilograms obtained? Can Kilograms Be Weighed? Evidentally Yes It Can. But, Still Mass Cannot Be Weighed So Kilograms Must Not Exist. Funny Isn't It.
    One good thing out of this the next time I'm at the doctors and they want to weigh me I'll tell them mass cannot be weighed.

    You can take all those Youtube videos with a grain of salt. They film continue to film until they get one good result and then use only that segment. Several years ago I was asked by a film crew to shoot some very small steel plates at 35 yards and not miss. They told me right up front that they'd like me to not miss and shoot slow if that would help. They said they'd speed the shot up to make it look fast later on. My forty second sequence was sped up to about fifteen seconds. As good as Jerry M. is, he doesn't count on hitting anything at a thousand yards with a 9mm handgun. He might shoot until it happens and that's the part you'll see.

    Our experience echo's 44MAG's. When we first started shooting at 500 yards, all three of us walked the rounds onto the target while another or both of us spotted. GENERALLY, once the correct sight picture was found it was good for the day....unless the sky was full of floating clouds. Change the nlight and so did the sight picture.

    Elmer Keith had a front blade made with gold bars laid in it that came on at different ranges when held level with the top of the rear sight. I think Ed McGivern did the same. We did something similar by just filing grooves in the front blade and filling them with white out. It worked very well.

    Oh, for us and certainly me, if the wind kicked up a little...I was done. We learned a lot about what a little breeze will do to a slow moving bullet. As for me, I never did learn how to apply it to my shooting. Being a woos...it was easier to quit...lol!!

    First let me say Miculek is one of the best but on the 1000yd shot he missed the balloon. His shot was low and left but the splatter on the steel plate broke the balloon. Still quite the shot at 1000 yds. But no, we don't know how much prep work or how many shots were fired to make that "hit". Jerry didn't say he hit the balloon, he just said he would see if he could break it.
