Re: What motivated me to form LongRangeHunting.com

Jeff Cooper once wrote " If you ever shoot game at a distance of over 200 yards you should sit down and write a two page letter explaning why."

I can only think of two words in response. Why not?

I'm glad to be a part of a web site that answers a more important question regarding 200+ yard shooting.

How?

Len-

I never knew the story...

I always just thought that the grief over at HA drove you to do it as a refuge for those of us that don't mind "going long", and were tired of the berating that was doled out over there on any thread that mentioned a long shot.

It's good to hear the "rest of the story...".

Gary, number 12, where have you been?

HA was a stopover place where I tried to find a sanctuary. In fact, because of me they even started a long range hunting sub-forum. But...........you know what happened. That was the last straw just before this was started.

Re: What motivated me to form LongRangeHunting.com

People who only shoot a couple of times a year,who don't reload who have never shot pass 100 yards. Just don't understand most of them well never take the time to or spend the money on learning how or buying the equipment to do so.
So when they start telling me how it can't be done I just smile.

Re: What motivated me to form LongRangeHunting.com

i was fueling the fire today. shot long range for me the first time this year. we hunted the elusive 4 liter milk jugs. they didnt come any closer than 417 yrds so that were they meet their match. i went 5 for 5 with my little 223 shooting 50gr v-max.

im just starting out and have learned alot from this site. shooting steel and busting milk jugs is alot more fun than shooting paper at 100yrds.

the 4.5 inch groups at 417 were alot more rewarding than a .75 inch group at 100.

thanks for the site Mr. Backus

Re: What motivated me to form LongRangeHunting.com

Len: I've been up to your place in WI, and was impressed with your shooting rig. If I remember correctly, you had a NightForce scope, but I don't remember the make and calibre of your rifle. I rembember your spotting scope was a Swarovski, but your laser rangefinder was out of StarWars. Tell us about your setup.
