A new 1,000 yard IBS world record.

Tom Sarver has entered the ranks of the Immortals. Shooting at the Thunder Valley (Ohio) Range on July 7th, Tom nailed a truly spectacular 1.403″ 5-shot group at 1000 yards. This represents a new IBS Light Gun group-size record that edges Rich DeSimone’s 1.564″, previously thought “untouchable.” What is even more amazing is that the group was centered, producing a 50-score with 5 Xs. That will be a new IBS Score record as well.

Tom was shooting a big 30 wildcat he calls the “300 Hulk”. We’ve been told this is a shortened 338 Lapua Magnum necked down to 30 caliber, pushing 240gr Sierra MatchKings (0.711 BC) at close to 3000 fps. After the record Group/Score target on Relay One of Match 7 in the Ohio 1000-yard series, Tom added a 6″ group that secured the Light Gun class victory

Current 50BMG record (five shots at 1,000 yards) is 2.603” set by Sheri Rasmussen on 8/20/2006 in Reno. I got to see that one. That girl can shoot!
