Late Introduction...

Yep, I've been a member of this site for a little while now, started and few threads, and have posted on others. Then I recently got to thinking that I need to come on and tell you guys a bit about myself.

Well here goes, my name is Hal and I live in the Upstate of South Carolina. Right now I am 32 years old and have been hunting and shooting since I was knee-high to a grasshopper. I have recently gotten into the long-range game and have found my new calling. I keep telling my friends that this year, I don't even want to shoot at a deer unless it is 500yds plus. They think I'm crazy, but I can back that smack-talk up. Ha Ha, well most of the time anyway.

Below are some pictures of my favorite rifle. The 1st one shows my .338 Lapua Mag, and some of the tools of the trade. Dell Axim with Exbal, Leica 1200, and my Kestrel weatherstation.



The next pic is a view from my yard actually. If you look over the barrel to the far corner, that treeline is exactly 900yds. And I practice that one quite a bit.



The last pic is a target I recently shot on a fairly calm day. Now this target is an 8" circle and was at my 900 yard backstop. I fired two shots but could not tell where I was hitting, so I decided to drive over and check the target before I wasted a bunch of ammo. When I got to it, I was shocked because those holses are 1 5/8 inches apart. Got pretty excited and pulled the target. Can I do it again??? I don't know, but I did it once, and I was very pleased to say the least.



Anyways, being from SC, its hard to find a place that you can shoot extreme ranges safely, but I have managed to locate a spot that is 1100yds. And I can proudly say that many milkjugs have met their maker there.

I have read alot of interesting posts on this site, and have picked up on alot of valuable information. My hats off to you guys...

Thanks, but for some reason, I can't see my pics. I'm sure I posted them properly because I have done it before. How can you see them and I can't? Or are you pulling my leg?
