The 2000 yard Competitions
#1
Muzzle loading rifle got truly long range in 1865/66.

In 1865 the NRA(GB) instigated the first of two competitions held at the extreme range of 2000 yards. They were fired with muzzle loading rifles at Gravesend in 1865 and 1866 and were for rifles not exceeding 15lbs. in weight, with any description of sights. Rests, other than mechanical ones, were permitted.

I have an article on this on line here: The 2000 yard Competitions
