New guy from MT

Just thought id introduce myself.

I'm a dedicated shooter with more then average amount of varmint and big game experience. I get to shoot almost weekly and I try and burn out a barrel on my .204 or .223 every other year..

This year will be my trial year for true long range big game hunting. I finally scraped enough money together to have a rifle built specifically for precision shooting at longer distances and it should be here any day.

I'm working with two experienced shooters as coaches and hope everything will come together in its basic form this month!

I look forward to learning from you guys!

Greetings from Great Falls! Welcome to LRH and enjoy ... it's always nice to have another MT member.

Looking forward for some pix of your new rig. What are the specs on the rifle?

Ed

Re: New guy from MT

Snowy MTN rifles out of Missoulia is building it off a sendero i had problems with. The rifle is chambered in .300 rum and throated for the 210 grain bullets. The barrel is a 27.5 tac/target countour lilja, the bottom metal is Seekens, had a jewel thrown in to anchor the mix. Night force rail and a Razor HD slapped across the top. Should be an awesome shooter, every test target i have been sent has been under 1/2 moa.

the rifle ships today so ill get pics and targets up as soon as it makes it to my side of the state.

I'm in townsend for work a few times a month ill definitely take you up on your offer broz.

Yes, It is, and has been, against range rules for anyone to be past the 200 yard mark with out a range officer there to secure the line. It is fine to shoot the steel alone, you just can not go past the 200 yard mark. Too many dips and hollows on that road. The danger is, a new shooter arrives, and starts to shoot not knowing someone is down there. We recently installed the gate in an effort to enforce this rule. I am a range officer and have a key if you want me to come secure the line just give me a call.
