Eastern Ohio

Hi!

I don't really know what to say. I am new to long range shooting, have never shot game over 200 yards before. Haven't had a scope mounted to a rifle before actually. :P

Here are a few videos of me shooting a few of my rifles with iron sights.

First trying my 30-30 at 400 yards. That is the first time I shot that over 200 yards.

YouTube - 400 Yard Winchester 30-30 Shot

Next I am shooting my 30-06 Eddystone Model of 1917 at 400 yards. That was the first time I shot any rifle over 250 yards.

YouTube - 400yd 30-06 Peep Sight

There were a few more shots at that beforehand but I am on dial-up and would not be able to upload too large a file. I have since put a cheap scope on it, tomorrow I may zero it at 300 yards and take a 500 yard shot just to test it out.

I am going to start reloading so I will not mess with those long shots until I get some of my own cartridges.

I also love to shoot pistols.

YouTube - Coin Shots

I love this site! I have learned so much already and know I will learn more here than any other site.

Thanks for listening!

Carrollton, it is about 50 miles west of Pittsburgh.

Thank you for the welcome!

Re: Eastern Ohio

Welcome to the site.

There's a good IBS range near Coshocton that you could shoot at extended ranges. It's probably 60 miles west of you at the Rt70 and Rt77 split.
Do a search for Thunder Valley Rifle Range, send the owner an e-mail, and see if you could go there and do some shooting.
