liltank , I wanted something easy on the shoulder to learn on . I've only been shooting at longer ranges since about 2008 , so I have a lot to learn . my local range is 500 meters , roughly 550 yards ( 546 to be exact ) . I have confirmed my drops to 550 yds . 550 yds needs 8.2 elevation . I made a drop chart to 750 yds . if it holds true 750 yds needs 13.3 elevation . I'm shooting 140 Berger hunting vld's and RL17 powder .

where are you shooting , and how far can you shoot there ? I need to find a longer place to shoot , that's not too busy or too far to travel .

We did have a place on a farm that we can 1100yds, but they are selling the property. I know some Amish are building a barn in an area that we have sent rounds into before. I think we will be able to shoot straight on toward the mountain. We check things out here in the next couple months I'm sure.

Just got finished mostly (still waiting on the pachmayr decelerator for the 7mag) putting the new stocks on the 22-250 and 7mag. 22-250 is in the forground

Keep in mind the animals we shoot for food and display are not bullet proof. Contrary to popular belief, they bleed and die just like they did a hundred years ago. Being competent with a given rifle is far more important than impressive ballistics and poor shootability. High velocity misses never put a steak in the freezer.
