LRH Idaho mentor?

This is a request for help from any body who lives near Boise Idaho (I will drive if needed). I am looking for a mentor to help me start off the right way in long range shooting/hunting. I am not asking for a huge time commitment, just some one on one instruction that can get me going in the right direction.

Any input would be helpful. please send me a PM if you can.

Thanks,

Kevin

Re: LRH Idaho mentor?

There are a bunch of local great guys. I come up there about once a month to the Eagle area for the family.

You need to give us some info first. Like type of rifle, what's custom, do you reload, have you chronographed your loads. do you understand balistic charts, air density, wind drift?

Re: LRH Idaho mentor?

Parma Rod and Gun Club hosts LRTR shoots several times a year and some sort of class usually proceeds the shoot. There are a lot of members there that are into shooting long range and the facility accomadates shooting to 1200 yards (if you know where to cross the property boundary).



Parma Rod and Gun Club

An hour drive from Boise, but the membership fees are very reasonable and the facility has multiple pistol/rifle pits of various ranges, steel gongs at long range from covered firing line with wooden benches, trap ranges, lots of bang for your buck.

Re: LRH Idaho mentor?

I built a 270 WSM for hunting deer, bear and antelope at long range. I do reload but I have a lot of questions in regards to reloading for long range shooting. I am mostly interested in the long range hunting/shooting not bench competition or F-class. I recently bought a chrony to use but I haven't reloaded any 270 wsm cases to shoot through it. Basically what I am looking for is someone to shoot with on the weekends that I can learn from.

I have heard the Parma gun club would be a good place to go and I am more than willing to travel there.

Let me know what other info you guys need to help.

Thanks

Re: LRH Idaho mentor?

Details on the gun:

Savage Model 11 reciever
270 WSM
27" Shilen barrel
Elk Stalker stock by Stockade (have to give a shout out to Kevin Rayhill, he makes one hell of a product and has been the best service through my entire rifle project.)
Rifle Basix Trigger
Vortex Viper 6.5x20x50mm
20 moa picatinny rail
burris tactical rings

I will post pics as soon as I have it done painted. The rifle was built with one purpose in mind and that was to shoot out to 1k yds on deer, bear and goats.
