The target: a two-inch or so sticker on a five-inch phone. The distance: 1,123 yards.
Did TrackingPoint’s precision-guided rifle system, which claims to make it nearly impossible to miss, make the hit? Sure did.
Featured on the firearm savvy YouTube site RatedRR, the host conducted this “slow-mo torture test” on an HTC One M8 from more than a half a mile away. The tactical rifle system that gives real-time ballistics info and shooter point-of-view video was, in part, behind the success of hitting this tiny target.
RatedRR said that the system could have helped a shooter who needs a bit of assistance hit a target up to 1,200 yards away.
