Going for the World Record 2021

Extraordinarily successful people seek new frontiers to challenge. We are offering an opportunity more rare than climbing Mount Everest or even walking on the moon. The current world record for a long range rifle shot is 4 miles by James DeVoglaer. We are assembling all of the “parts and pieces” for an attempt at breaking the world record.

Along with the high return in terms of personal satisfaction and bragging rights of setting a world record extended extreme long range shot comes high risk. As a matter of fact, our chances of success are small. The below experience is for an “attempt” and we do not guarantee success.


Working Version of Details (Everything subject to change)

We are excited to have components for a new customized rifle on order. We are building what we think will be the world’s best Extended ELR rifle. If everything comes together, we should have the rifle ready for our our guests to shoot by July 2021.

We are investing a lot of money in one-of-a-kind custom gear. We are investing many hours into preparation. We want to set a record, we are clearly invested in making this happen. Last year we made an arrangement similar to this offering with a client for a long shot with our .375 Cheytac. Our client was successful in becoming the third person in human history to hit a target at over three miles, also setting the Wyoming State record long range shot.

Would you like to be the “shooter” on our team? Some risks that we want you to be completely aware of:

  • You might schedule an Attempt Day, but we are rained out and you lose your deposit.
  • It might take ten Attempt Days until a bullet connects with the target or it might happen the first day.
  • We might completely fail and never even get a bullet to land near the target.
  • A new quarantine order could occur the morning of the shoot.
  • The rifle might break after your first shot.
  • Your skills might hinder your success.
  • A 60 MPH gust of wind might take our shade canopy away.

Our chances are truly low. Isn’t it exciting though to be on the cutting edge?


Our behind-the-scenes timeframe:

  • March 30 – Chassis, trigger& action should be shipped to Scott & Shepard
  • April 10 – Scott sends order for ladder test to Ammo maker
