Just thought I would introduce myself. My name is Jeff I am 27 yrs old and I live in Orono, Maine which is close to Bangor. I served 4 yrs in the Marine Corps as a machinegunner and I am now going to school. I have been getting on here a lot to learn some tips on long range shooting. I have a REM XCR in 300 RUM that I am trying to get proficient with at long range. I have shot a few nice bucks with it up here, but not at long range. Up here in Maine there aren't many long range hunting opportunities so any long range work that I do will probably be on the range. I look forward to learning from the forum and extending my maximum effective range in the process
Welcome, glad to have you here. Lots of good folks and lots of good info. Jeff PI or Hollywood? Were you a machinegunner on a Fire Team or Door Gunner on a chopper or what? Semper Fi.

I was a heavy gunner in a CAAT platoon that later morphed into a mobile assault platoon when we went on our second deployment. Both are truck mounted. So, the majority of my time was spent on an M2 or the MK-19. I have done a lot with the 240 and the SAW but I have way more experience with the heavy guns.
