World-renowned shooter Jerry Miculek’s no stranger to jaw-dropping feats of speed and accuracy, but a video released earlier today on his YouTube channel may take the ballistic cake. Using a Smith & Wesson 929 revolver that carries his name topped with a Vortex Razor Red Dot, Miculek takes aim at a balloon taped to a steel plate 1,000 yards out. After loosing one shot that lands low, Jerry finds his mark.
Note added 8-5-2014: Many have commented on YouTube that it’s possible a projectile fragment from a hit on “simply” the plate could be what pops the balloon. That may, in fact, be the case.
