The Army appears to have slowed development of the PSR as it improves the capabilities of the XM2010 Enhanced Sniper Rifle. Chambering the XM2010 for .300 Winchester Magnum ammo pushes its range from 1,200 to 1,500 meters.

I was going to mention that there are plenty of guys shooting .308 match grade rifles that are accurate to well in excess of 1,000 yards.  A lot of them eat a lot of venison every winter too, meaning there are rifles on the civilian market right now that good and better. 

But it still comes down to individual skill and muscle memory that is only acquired through lots and lots of practice.  This is why ammunition is sold in large lots...not just to accumulate, but so one can regularly shoot and stay accurate...
