A round from a 223 will make it these distances, but with no authority. It will be at the mercy of the wind.

My 260AI is easyier to shoot at 1000 than my 223 is at 500.

Did I forget to mention at 600 yrds you have to be very accurate when using iron sights. Every Marine shoots this all the time. Its part of their qualification. I have seen first hand what the 5.56 (223) can do in the military. So I know it can do it in the civilian world. The wind is no different military or civilian

Our Fclass 10 rings are 6 inches at 600 yards x ring is 3 inches. Much smaller than human silloute targets.

If someone is great a 223 would be functional at 600+ yards. But If you plan on hunting something like coyotes or shooting milk jugs a 223 is not going to be on top of the list of guns to grab.

We need to think about humain and responsable kills here too. I give the Marines all the credit in the world but the same guys qualifying at 600 yards are going to have a terribly hard time hitting a coyote in the vitals.

I will take your advise as soon as I get my hands on it! I will be 600 and under most of the time.
