Re: I am so proud of what you LRH members do for the shooting/hunting world!

Len,
As recent as last fall I witnessed two "hunting pros" (hollywood style) discussing the phenomenon of long range hunting, and in the end they said that a 30-06 only has the capability of and "ETHICAL" 200 yard kill and that if a person wanted to step out to 300-400 yards they would need at least a .300 win.. They then made a remark that they didn't know any one that could accurately shoot a .300 win. at those ranges because of recoil.

I know exactly what you mean with this thread starter. There is NO DOUBT at least a couple numbskulls quoting what these two said in their discussion, and if it weren't for sites such this, to many people wouldn't get to the truth.

My hat is off to you and the many others that use this site to peaceably discuss the truths and to find enlightenment on the subject of long range shooting and hunting.

Len,
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!

Thanks for this website. I cannot begin to tell you the things I've learned on this site. This is not to mention the things I've bought and sold in the classifieds.
