RATON, NM — Billy Carter, a native of Spring, Texas, hit a 1 MOA target from a distance of 2.07 miles at the NRA Whittington U Long Distance Range last week. Carter improved the accuracy of his 2013 record, shooting a CheyTac USA M200 Intervention® chambered in .375 CheyTac topped with a Vortex Razor HD Gen1 scope.
“Every time you pull a trigger on a gun, you get more accurate with it,” Carter said. “This time I hope we’ve polished off some of the myth surrounding last year’s shot. I really don’t think anything is impossible at this point.”
Carter, who grew up in Houston, began working at an early age on his family’s gun range. Carter’s Country, now a 50 year staple in the shooting sports community, services an average 5,000 shooters monthly and performs thousands of sight-ins just before hunting season every year.
“I’m not a military trained marksman and definitely not an expert,” Carter relates, “but I have had 40 or more years pulling triggers on all kinds of guns. I’ve learned to get a feel for each gun and its trigger, which aides in the ability to shoot long distance accurately.”
