Depending on how much time I get behind the gun I am hoping to get a spring bear from at least 600 is my goal for myself. Within 2 years I hope to be good enough on steel to take a moose at 1000+ with it. Not too sure if these are realistic timetables or not but that is what I am trying for.
Well it took me all of about five minutes to work up to 1,080 with my 300 Rum so I'd say you are dragging your feet ole man... HA!
Naa, just pulling your leg. No one can build your confidence in your, and the rifle's abilities so take as much time as you feel appropriate and have fun.
Confidence is a huge factor in long range shooting that far too few even consider.
The difference between "I know I can" and "I don't think I can" makes for a lot of errors.
I know you waited a long time for this rig so enjoy it.
