I may have not answered this corretly. Define "practice" for me. At first I took it to mean "what do I practice for" and answered hunting. But in reality I practice in hunting situations on rocks and other targets so maybe that is better described as recreational?

Re: Which type of Long Range Shooting do you practice most?

Well it was a toss up between recreational and hunting. My favorite hobby, recreation and hunting is the coyote. Every trip is a combination of some sort of rifle, pistol practice. I spend enough time at the bench to zero and load check. Then I move on to regular hunting type practice. Aka swinging targets, jumping jack type targets. Usually once I punch the paper acceptably at the various yardages, I only go back to check sights. We have the advantage of a large collection of lava rock with white spots already on them. All provided by nature.

I do alot of military prone shooting. It was a hard flip between Military and Comp.

Agreed, need some more clear definition of terms. Most of the shooting I do is recreational and tactical as practice for hunting and competition.

Mostly recreational, for fun but I do shoot a monthly 1000yd BR match.
Shooting prone off a bipod at 1000yds+ is definitely the most fun and gets me ready for hunting season.
