I zero at 200,then verify grouping at 400.Then I jump to700-1200,with most at 800+.I crack rocks spring bear at spots I elk hunt in and elk have not moved back in yet.I get actual dial,and keep this info in a small range book.I have picts and sketches for reference.I do this at high mountain road eras also.I want to work out farther,but have 1200 Lieca.Hoping terrapin comes out with slope and ballistic curve soon

Kinda weird to read what I typed. As of about 3 years ago I never thought that it would be possible for me to be able to shoot accurately past where my rangefinder would accurately reach.

That makes me feel pretty good
Same here.

Just a couple of years ago I thought 500yds was long range.

Now, I try not wasting ammo at 100yds except for bore sighting new scopes and some limited load development.

After that, it's 500-1k and even then, my son gets bored shooting at the same distance over and over. So, we look for ways to mix it up. We're currently working on a load for 2k.

LRH opportunities here are limited because it's hard to justify why we're passing up all the close up shots in order to shoot something way over there.

Re: how often "honestly" do most here shoot past 500 yards

Most of the time I'm shooting at 1000 or 1710. I also have a spot for 1300-1500 yards but if I go past a 1000 I usually just jump to the 1710. Also have a spot I've been trying out the last month or two at 2019. Although here lately I've been shooting from 700-900 yards, I think mostly because I get tired of driving back and forth. I need to get a steel range set up. Hopefully I will be able to do this in the near future out 3000 yards on flat ground and straight roads. I zero at 100 and do load work at 400.

I have 120 rounds through my edge only 5 less than 600. My zero is at 600 any thing less than that is what my 7mag is for
