Re: 30-06 to 1000yds

I would suggest lots of practice at ranges of 500 yards and beyond. Then spend some time learning to stalk closer. I would recommend the same thing for myself and 98% of the poster I read on this site.

In 42 years of hunting, in order to take a shot on a game animal over 500 yards would have required me to get in my truck and drive backwards.

In my few years of hunting in PA, I would agree. But in my years of hunting in the West, I have seen a lot of game at 500 yds and much farther

Have had a great spring shooting chucks out past 500 with a 223 and a 308..
Not bad country for shooting past 500yds and a good training.

thanks for the advise and welcome to LONGrangehunting.com. I hear they are starting a sling-shothunting.com site and are looking for charter members

Ha ha! Yeah, that's very funny! If "they" did, you would have people on here claiming regular and routine kills at 1000 yards plus. (with a long range bean flip).
