Re: How young are you guys?
I'm 24, started hunting when I was a toddler with home made bows n slingshots.
Shot my first pig when I was 11, fired my first centrefire at the same age(.300win mag in a BAR).
Age 12; my school had an indoor target shooting team and an outdoor clays team.
I participated in both and the interschool comps.
Hunted in Africa for the first time at 13, then over the following 4 years on and off with my dad.
Till three years ago, I was very much happy to shoot factory ammo, and would have considered putting a few shots near the bull a good result before heading off hunting.
Then I started reloading maniacally and doing some local informal competition shooting and long range shooting at the same time,
At the moment I am working toward getting a handle on the .308win out to 600m, then I want to consider getting an .338lapua.
I am also getting into blackpwder cartridge shooting, I'll be picking up a .45-120 on thrusday, and later possibly a .38-55 or .38-40 which will be a whole new challenge.
