.45 long gun question?

Ok I have a friend who says he has an old .45 long gun(rifle) that he can shoot 1moa at 1400yds. My question is this: is it even possible to get that kind of range out of that caliber?

I am in no way an expert on this, but I'm going to have to say no.

I mean, if he means .45ACP.....definitely no.

I seem to remember hearing something about a 45-70 reaching out pretty damn far though.

Remember, some people are alive simply because it is illegal to kill them.

It's probably 45LC and im gonna say BS. That round is pretty similar to 44mag, theres no way in hell you can be that accurate at 1400yrds

Your buddy is a moron and a liar....
Even if it was a 45-70 it is still VERY unlikely that he could hit a 4x8 sheet of plywood at 500 little less 1400.

You can get quite a bit more out of 45-120 and .450 Marlin but I doubt it's that much more.
