OutdoorHubPGA Tour Player Films Long-Range Shooting in Awesome Super Slow-Mo Video
We’ve featured PGA Tour professional Jimmy Walker here on OutdoorHub during hunting season before, but this time, we’re here to discuss his long-range rifle skills.
Take a scroll through Jimmy Walker’s Instagram, and you’ll see he’s really just your average south Texan. He spends much of his time perfecting his flawless golf swing, but he’s also a big time hunter, avid stargazer, and long-range plinker.
Here’s Mr. Walker at North Springs Shooting Range and Recreation Area in Utah after connecting with a target from a distance of one mile away- Nice shooting Jimmy!
This was a lot harder than I thought!! Learning curve was steep today but we got on the mile target. That’s 1760yds kids!!!! So fun!! @christensenarms 6.5 Creedmoor ELR @nightforce_optics

Just recently, however, Walker wrapped up a quick guys trip to a shooting range in Mason, Texas where he and his buddies got in some good old fashion long distance shooting.
The other thing we should probably mention about Jimmy Walker, is that he’s quite camera savvy, and regularly captures astonishing photos of other galaxies sitting far, far away from Earth:
NGC 3521 from Sierra Remote. I know it’s been a while but I’m back. This is a new one for me. Lots of good stuff here. Enjoy!!! www.darkskywalker.com

Well this time, Walker turned his camera towards the targets down range, and filmed these awesome clips in super slow-mo where you can actually watch the bullet flying towards the target:
This was from 605 yards using a .338 Lapua:
