Re: How Did You Find The Long Range Hunting Site?

I was searching the internet for information on 458 SOCOM, and load data for it using Ramshot powder.

This LRH site came up as someone posted 458 SOCOM as a remark. Didn't help my querry.

I've learned a lot here in the last week. I like the people here. They are civilized, and humorous.

Looking for information on the 257 Weatherby, and with an odd stroke of luck stumbled on this site, hung around for a bit, liked what I saw and had to join.

Re: How Did You Find The Long Range Hunting Site?

I see this thread is kinda old. But I felt compelled to post on it.

It seems every time i would do a search for a specific high velocity round or something long range. The search engine would bring up at least two items from this web sight. I would go here and end up reading gobs of stuff. So I decided to quit lurking and join. Great websight.

Re: How Did You Find The Long Range Hunting Site?

i found this site while surfing to get started in long range hunting but i dont know much about using forums but i hope this is the right place to intro myself so here goes.i am 55 live in gillette wy. i am disabled now from a work injury so getting around to hunt and walking the draws is out of the question but wyoming fish and game closed most the public land to disabled and elderly and called them walk in areas but i have hunted all my life and having a hard time giving it up so maybe finding high ground and a long range rifle could help. i am trying to find out what caliber gun to buy, what equipment i need etc. but i think i have to ask that on a different thread right? anyway thanks for a great site and please be patient while i figure this out.

I'm on quite a few other forums, and I picked up a link on one of them.

Re: How Did You Find The Long Range Hunting Site?

I had just dropped off my 03-A3 at my gunsmiths ti have him put the 30-06 barrel back in it. I had the rifle handed down to me when my father passed away 20 years ago and when I got it I changed it to the .243 what my father always had it at when we lived in Pa. He had switched it back to a 30-06 when he went to Idaho in '71 to hunt Elk. Four months later when he was 42 he suffered a massive stroke, twenty years later he died after 20 years of one health problem after another.

Well the last time I hunted with the Springfield as a .243 was in '96 on a mule deer hunt in Utah. In fact that hunt ended up being the longest shot I ever made on a mulie, 265 yards, dropped in his tracks. Bit having a 7RM and a .300 WinMag I never hunted with the .243 since. I decided to switch back to the 30-06 so I would use the rifle again and could use it for Elk hunting as well.

I had heard lots of good things in regards to using Berger bullets for hunting and when I started researching new loads a search brought me to this site, I joined that day. That first thread I read regarding Berger bullets was hundreds of postings long and took hours to read through. I was hooked in this site.

The articles I have read are great, much more indepth discussion than the other hunting sites I belong to. More science, exambles, and proof that just opinion thrown around. So far I have learned a lot in regards to long range shooting, bullet preformance and shooting technics.

I am picking up the 30-06 next week. I have purchased Berger 168 gr .308 VLC Hunting bullets, but since my readings here I may go in a different direction, at least somewhat. I think I will stick with my 180 gr Accubonds in my .300 WinMag, maybe try the 168 gr Bergers in the 06 but I think I may try 165 gr Sciroccos instead and finally try the 168 gr VLC Hunting bullets in my 7RM. So don't be surprised if you see me post a trade in the classified adds here, trading y .308 168 gr VLCs for .284 168 gr VLC. Who knows maybe I am over thinking this too, been known to do that.
