It’s OK to be skeptical of what Jim Spinella accomplished. But there’s no denying the video evidence of him hitting a target at 2.4 miles.
GunsAmerica.com reports on November 22 Spinella hit a 36-inch plate at 4,210 yards with a HCR 375 CheyTac. That’s the equivalent of 2.4 miles.
How did he do it? It wasn’t easy.
The website reports Hill Country Rifles (HCR) and Spinella have been doing this for a few years, and prior to the 4,210-yard hit, Spinella had hit a 36-inch plate at 3,600 and 3,800 yards.
It’s reported each hit involved a new rifle built by HCR, all in 375 CheyTac. GunsAmerica.com says custom scope were engineered for each shot to avoid running out of adjustments. A 230 MOA rail was machined for a 20 MOA Nightforce Unimount to provide a total of 250 MOA.
