Randy Wise set a new ELR Central World Record at a mind-blowing distance of 2,158-yards during the 2019 NRA Extreme Long-Range Nationals, held at Camp Atterbury, IN, on Friday, August 23. From a cold bore, he went three for three shooting at a 36-inch square white steel plate.

Randy Wise connected at 2,158 yards with a Savage .338 Lapua rifle, setting a new ELR Central World Record in the process at the 2019 NRA Extreme Long-Range Nationals.


Wise was shooting a Savage Arms rifle, chambered in .338 Lapua with the stock 26-inch, 1:9-inch barrel, Accurate Rifle Systems chassis, Rempel bipod and Rifle Basix trigger. The scope was a Vortex Golden Eagle. And for his load, Wise used Lapua brass with Berger 300-grain hybrid bullets, Federal 215M primers and 90.5 grains of Retumbo powder. Ballistic solving was provided by Applied Ballistics.
