Rules For The ELR sub-forum

I'd really like this sub-forum to be mainly for the guys who already know how to do it over 1,000 yards.

I hope everyone of all levels of skill and experience will enjoy reading the topics in order to learn more.

But I hope the questions and discussion will come mostly from already qualified thousand yard plus shooters or those who are almost there right now.

I want this to be a special spot for the guys who already do it over 1,000 yards. Their own playground.

I'd like this sub-forum to be free from the 300 yard shooter asking the same question that someone else just asked yesterday about 300 yard shooting.

RULES
  • No neophyte questions and discussions, find them elsewhere on this site.
  • OVER 1,000 yards

I have not been on the site for a few weeks, so I am not sure when ELR became active. Thanks to Len and others who have been instrumental in making this happen. I am looking forward to some interesting discussions and great information!

Re: Rules For The ELR sub-forum

Finally a spot that I can share some info and get some with fellow shooters who speak my language ! I shoot a mod 70 Win / 264 mag / 140 gr Horn SST.
I've shot many whitetails in 500 yards plus , the farthest kill was 617 ( not bad for NY state) My target is at 1070 yards ( 22"x 3/4" steel plate) that I shoot for fun down a grass strip runway when there are no planes around !

Earl

PS............Almost forgot to mention........couldn't do it without my Greybull Precision / Leupold 4.5 x 14 scope

Re: Rules For The ELR sub-forum

Great Idea, good rules, a different subject than you have for other forums. This is a VERY specialized topic.
Was just out to see Shawn.....You guessed it I am now in line for a rifle.
