How's it going? I've been reading on here for months and am in the middle of ordering my first full custom rifle
. Prior to now the longest range I was able to practice on was up to 500 yards and last fall I took my first elk at 513. Before that I never used a custom gun, just practiced and learned the ballistics for my rifle. Oddly enough the reason I used the custom was my 300 weatherby would not pattern after the flight.
Once back I went to shoot it and as luck would have it scoped myself pretty badly. Since then I flinch about 1 out of 5 shots. My plan was to take my 22 and start with it and work my way through my rifles. Does anyone have any tips on how to work through this? Also, as I've never fully been trained on long range are their any methods I should practice or try to change?
Any advice would be appreciated! Mt rifle builder is going to take me out for a full day of long range training once the rifle is complete, but in the interim I want to try to get over this issue and become a better shot in general.
