Hello, new from Maine

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

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.

Welcome to LRH. I am currently in your state for just over a week. We are staying just outside of Presque Isle. Beautiful country.
