Finally able to shoot past 100yds

Been able to shoot 300 yards the past few times out. I think the bug has bit. I want to go to 500 now. May have to look southern DE.

Elevation I am decent at with app and data. Need to work on dialing wind. And, breathing, etc etc. still pretty happy with results so far for my abilities.

Some results.

And more fun/frustrating.
Go to one of the Frontier days at Peacemaker in WV.
Long range practice out to 1100 yards

Go visit Dan Newberry at Bang Steel.

He has targets out to 1 mile. If you have the rifle for them.

Thanks you all. Appreciate the direction for longer ranges. Hopefully I can get to the range more to perceive before moving to 6. I think Iíd need some instruction.

My brother gave me a Howa barreled action as a gift. 26Ē heavy barrel in 300 win mag. Going to build that up if it shoots well. Currently shooting an older R700 5R Milspec in .308.

I shoot with the bridgeville guys at reade range in PA, they are a good group and fantastic shooters.

Your welcome to shoot at reades, I'll be there 8/17, but it's a haul for you I think.

Thanks. I will check out that link provided by Jerry. I donít think Iím ready to compete, but it would be nice to shoot that distance.

It is a haul, but I had to travel to greenwood once in a while for work so Iím familiar with the drive

It's a great way to learn, I've found everyone always helpful and not too competitive.

Only way I've found to shoot past 300 yards
