New long range shooter/hunter from Grand Rapids, MI

Hey guys, I am a relatively new hunter(I've been around hunting and been hunting since I was a little kid, but I am only 19 now), and brand new to long range shooting. I just started long range (so far I have made it out to 600 yds) shooting about a month ago. I am working on holding MOA out to 600 before I move out to a farther distance. I JUST started handloading, and have been learning some new interesting things from some friends in that area. I currently have 2 very similar long range set-ups. The first is a Remington 700 SPS tactical in a HS precision stock. The stock was skim bedded by Kampfeld Customs, and they also installed a badger bolt handle. It is wearing a leupold 20moa base, leupold rings, a TIS cuff sling, and right now it does not have a scope. It had a SWFA SS fixed 10x, but right now, I lent it to a friend so I have a shooting partner. The other is a savage 10PC with EGW 20 moa base, leupold rings, a harris non-swivel bipod, and a bushnell elite 6500 2.5-16x50 mil dot scope. Both guns are in .308

Welcome to LongRangeHunting. Sounds like a couple of nice guns. It won't be long and you'll be stretching it out to 1000 yards or more.

I already caught the bug. I sold off a lot of my old weapons to afford the rifles that I have now. And I already have plans in the books for upgrading my current rifles and getting a few new weapons in new calibers. Also ordered a new scope for the remington because my friend decided he wanted to buy the SS off my hands! Now time to find some stock packs!
