Bullets travel far! Always make sure of your target and beyond. If you miss the target, the bullet can travel a great distance before it hits something or runs out of momentum. This chart shows how far a bullet can potentially travel.
NOTE: Dangerous ranges for a high power rifle can extend up to 4.5 km (over 2.5 miles) and up to 1.6 km (1 mile) for a .22 rim-fire rifle.
IMPORTANT! As a responsible and ethical hunter, you should only take a shot when at a distance that you are confident to make a one-shot kill.
