Using a 6.5 Creedmoor to zap flying clays out to 200 yards (VIDEOS)

While many consider hitting clays pigeons an iffy prospect past about 50 yards, this is no ordinary shooter.

In the above video, the Gould Brothers use an AR-10 6.5 Creedmoor from Alex Pro Firearms stoked with 142-grain Winchester Expedition Long Range to line up a shot on an airborne clay target out to the 200-yard mark. A SilencerCo Omega gives it some hush while the Alex Pro carries Vortex glass as they reach for the clay.

Just for reference, multi-World and European English clay-shooting champion George Digweed drilled a clay out to 130 yards during the 2011 Bisley Live shooting show in front of a live crowd– with his over-and-under.
