Using a custom rifle chambered in .408 Cheyenne Tactical, Bill Poor connected on a 3-mile shot to set what could be a new world record.
Bill Poor, of Tuscola, Texas, reportedly connected on a 3-mile shot Jan. 14, 2018 near Midland. His 5,280-yard shot breaks the unofficial record of 2.84 miles (5,000 yards) set by retired Navy SEAL SEAL Charles Melton in Sept. 2017. And, it shatters the 3,800-yard and 4,210-yard shots the Hill Country Rifle Team made in 2015 and 2016.

Poor used a custom rifle modified by Vestalís Custom Rifles, chambered in .408 CheyTac, firing a 390-grain bullet at 3,160 feet per second. It took the bullet over 14 seconds to reach the target 3 miles away.

Specifically designed for long-distance shooting, Cheyenne Tactical cartridges are popular among long-distance marksmen. Charles Melton also used a .408 CheyTac to make his 2.8-mile shot last year, and the HCR Team used a .375 CheyTac for both of their epic shots.
