One at 43 steps another at 46 steps. Didn't realize they were that far. Both with 3" 5 shot.

Well, I cannot really say that I am proud of my longest shot, but it was very impressive! I was twelve years old and I was on my first turkey hunt. I was on top of the world until evening started creeping up on me. It was a fall hunt and it was the last day of the hunt. I wanted to kill a turkey very badly. We sat in a spot where we usually see turkeys and got ready. Unfortunately the turkeys came in at about ninety yards. I waited until the closest one gave me a shot and I took it. We guessed it at 85 yards when it was all said and done. I had my trusty win. model 1300 12guage using a remington #4 3incher. I have never had trouble nailing turks at long distances with that combination.

Around 50 yds. in my early days with my double barrel side by side 10 ga. That was using both barrels too (tripping both triggers at the same time).
What was the recoil like?

I wander what the farthest is with a bow...

The longest I ever made or took, was 41 steps. I shoot a Win. Model 1300, using Fed. or Win. (like both), I use #5 and sometimes #6 shot. Both brands and shot size work well out of the 1300.
