A Beersheba 'myth'?

Can anybody help me to understand a Beersheba 'myth'? In the film 'The Lighthorsemen' great play is made of the fact that the rifles of the Turks facing the 4th/12th ALH charge were sighted at 1,600 metres. Why should a rifle sighted at this distance be any less effective against a target (even a moving target) at, say, 400 metres?
