    No way you say? Well, Clint says it was so in circa 1900.

    The term sharp-shooter didn't just appear out of thin air.

    The green coats (Federal Army marksmen) and Confederate snipers routinely shot 600+ yards with lethal results on living, breathing, moving targets.

    This during the civil war in the 1860's.

    One of the requirements is sub 5" groups at 200 yards, standing.

    Stationary targets should be do-able under ideal conditions.
