Additionally, for comfort and added stability, Phillips was using the Crosstac Precision Long Range shooting mat. The mat is lightweight, carries bipod accessories and is easy to fold up for storage. It's also wider than most options, and in the words of Phillips himself the Crosstac mat is "very comfortable."
The 3.4-mile shot took 17 seconds to report, and required 625 MOA of elevation (10 degrees) from a 100-yard zero. The steel target measured 32″ x 48″. You can see the impact point of Phillips' successful hit in the photo above, it is at the very top of the plate, slightly left of center.
You can see Phillips and his teammates from Team Applied Ballistics featured on the cover of the March 2017 issue of Shooting Sports USA. This was after the team won the 2016 King of 2 Miles event condcuted at the NRA Whittington Center in Raton, NM.
