Call me up and order a DTA!

Tough to get bored when you can change calibers in 60 seconds.

    Get yourself the most accurate 22LR setup you can lay your hands on and when you get really good with that at 700 yds you'll be too old to be bored.

    Step your power down so that 700 yds seems like a mile.

    You'll maximize your breathing skills, trigger pull, capability of reading the wind and I could go on and on.

    Christmas is coming, so you can buy some ugly Christmas decorations, hang them on a tree. Set'em at different yardages and get in the spirit. You could do some predator hunting.

    Put a 4 inch steel gong at 700 yds. Go out and fire one Rd at it every day. When your skills become so pronounced and hits are so frequent you are bored, let us know.

    Cowboy has it right. Here in the SE portion of NY State there isn't too much LRH between woods, farmers and property owners not letting one shoot and so on. I have a single shot Kimber 22LR we've taken out to 500+ yds to shoot eggs and some 4" flange caps. About 600 is the max I get to shoot anything anymore so downsizing to increase the difficulty is the way.

    a 22LR at 500 isn't as easy as some think it is. We miss it more than we hit it.

    Haha all very good ideas.
    I do predator hunt a lot. I use my 22-250 for that and its good for 500 the way its set up right now. I do as much hunting as i can but tags here take a while except for whitetail. Which i dont exactly care about but i do tag out each year with that. Taking time off work is hard because i usually take my vacation in the summer for camping.

    I do like the idea of the egg shoot. And take it another step with my 17HMR would be fun also.
