though I'm not old (I hope, I'll be 50 my next birthday) I remember when you couldn't find any info as to how to extend your range in hunting. Possibly it was growing up here in Hardy County WV (halfway between nowhere and nothin), It was nov. 1982 when I just held way high on a buck at (later ranged) 606 yards with a 270 win. and he hit the ground flopping.
I thought man, I gotta learn how to do this on purpose, everyone here had 1 answer, get a bigger gun.
I got online in 1998, and found this place and things started to come togather. I wish to personaly thank you and all the members here for the advise, and encouragement that has taken me to the level where I'm at.
I encourage and influence alot of local folks to become familuar with they're rifles and explore the capabilities of them, when asked how I do it, the first advise I give them is.
go here www.longrangehunting.com
register, read and ask questions, more hunter friendly ballistic knowledge on that sight than at camp perry!
