Who are the One Mile Club Members?

The one mile club is very small, probably under 2,500 people.  There are a few hundred elite private and government military employees that have shot and hit humans at 1 mile or more.  Our page is for fun sport shooters that shoot steel or paper targets.

There have been 50 BMG clubs for many years, and dozens or hundreds of people have had success.  Since 2015, interest in long range shooting and extreme long range (ELR) shooting has grown.  Being successful with a one mile shot on a paper or steel target is on the same level as climbing mount Everest, however fewer people have achieved the hit to join our club.  Have you?  If so, please register your hit with us by clicking HERE!


Don Baldwin 1,790 yards  22 Creedmoor.  [read more=”Click here to Read More” less=”Read Less”] On June 2, 2018 in Western Wyoming Don was a special guest at a long range shooting experience.  He used his new 22 Creedmoor made by Mac’s Gunworks and after getting it dialed in at 1,007 yards, he calculated his DOPE and asked Scott Austin to spot for him at 1790 yards.  Scott confirmed this first round hit that landed 8 inches from center! https://www.macsgunworks.com [/read]


Eric Adams 1,765 yards with 6.5 Creedmoor & 2,175 Yards with 7mm.  [read more=”Click here to Read More” less=”Read Less”] On October 9, 2018 achieved a 1-mile hit with a Ruger Precision Rifle chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor.  Scope was a Vortex Razor Gen II and you used Hornady 147 grain ELD ammunition.  Barrel was aiming 74 Minutes of Angle (MOA) over the target, which at 1,765 yards is 1,367 inches, or 114 feet!  Bullet took about 3.5 seconds to travel to the target, and the sound of the hit took about 4.8 seconds to travel back to our ears.  

You achieved two hits at 2,175 yards with Mac’s Gunworks Rem 700 rifle chambered in 7mm Remington Magnum.  Your scope was a Vortex Viper Gen II. You used handloads with 195 grain Berger bullets.  At 2,158 yards and 75 minutes of angle in your scope, your barrel was pointed 1,708 inches above the target, or 142 feet.  In other words, to hit a can on a sidewalk, you would have had to aim at the 14th floor of the building behind the sidewalk!  [/read]

Dustin Ellermann  2100 yards [read more=”Click here to Read More” less=”Read Less”] Whittington Center in New Mexico, August 2015, Barrett M99 .50 BMG, Bullet flight time was 3.7 seconds, drop was 94 MOA, velocity at target was only 1,100 fps. The 7,500′ elevation and a 5 degree down-slope helped the ballistics. Dustin reports: “About six seconds after impact you would hear the ‘ding’.” (Editor’s note: The speed of sound at 7500′ elevation* is 1053.61 fps, or roughly 351.20 yards per second. The distance-to-target of 2100 yards divided by 351.2 works out to a 5.98 second time delay. ) [/read]
