That greatly depends on the person behind it.

If you need to go farther, you're running from the law or you need to move to a magnum gun. You also need radar. I've hit steel at 1200 yds. Not consistently but with a factory model 110c savage and bushnell scope hit 5 out of 11 times using rem core-lokt 150 gr on a 22'' round target. Could probably do better with a custom outfit and match bullets. But I've had my savage near 30 year, why change when I know what I can do with it.

Farther than you can. Hold it at a 45 degree angle and you'll get at least a couple miles out of it.

I think you need to rephrase your question.

It can't shoot. It's a cartridge.
