Hello from NW Missouri
Merry Christmas to all from NW Missouri. I am just starting to catch the long range bug, and plan to do lots of reading on the site while it is nice and cold outside. I have a Sako 75 in 7mm STW and made my first long range shot on a deer this year, well not long range compared to many others on the site, but long for me (384 yards). My previous long shot was just a hair over 100 yards, and most have been much shorter, so this was a major step.
The main farm I hunt has some large crop and CRP fields, so 1/2 mile plus shots are available. The problem is, 10 yard shots are available also, so bullet selection is difficult. I have been shooting 160 grain Accubonds, but if anyone has any suggestions for something that has worked better for them, let me know.
