    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.
