Advice for a beginner


I have not been in the sport long and am looking for some advice on setting goals.

I have a Remington 700 in .308 Win. I know I can hit coins at 250 yards but past that I am not sure what sort of goals I should be setting myself. What are realistic targets for longer distances with this rifle and caliber?

Re: Advice for a beginner

I'm a newbie too, what I did/am doing is to just work my way out further a little at a time...I'm shooting 300 now, and plan to push it to 400 and hopefully further this summer. F-Class is good practice for reading wind, and at 300, 600 and 1000 yards provides a great challenge. I've shot 1 f-class shoot at 600, it was a blast, you find out that you are both better and worse than you thought you were. For target, the .308 will go out to 1k, and maybe 1200...for Game, I stick to where I'm confident, with the ultimate goal of 600 yards for deer size game
