Re: new to LRH from western ND

I have this kit Redding Big Boss Single Stage Press Pro-Pak Kit. But it is far from complete, you still need a case tray, sizing and seating dies, shellholders, a larger powder funnel for the Lapua sized cases, a tumbler isnt neccasary but i like my rounds to be clean and shiny, a trimmer, a powder measure, some neck lube, calipers, and these arent neccasary either but they sure do help consistancy Hornady Lock-N-Load Overall Length Gage Bolt Action, Hornady Lock-N-Load Bullet Comparator Basic Set 6serts, and the modified cases for each specific caliber to measure your distance to the lands.

Whats your last name? I might recognize it.

Biggest fail of 2014 so far... http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...ea-ftf-128972/

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

I see myself only going out to 800 for hutning, and 1800 on paper. Now i dont think i can just get a big bad rifle put nf scope on it and pick it up and do that so thats not what im doing here. I want to learn all i can about it. I want to be the best i can at what i do and i know it does take practice and more practice. but that works out for me cuz i love pulling the trigger on any gun. There has yet to be a gun i shot and did not smile after i was done. As far as ever selling guns to get custom ones i dont think i can do that, it would be very hard for me to let any one of my guns go. I think i will have to bite the bullet and just shell out some cash for another when the times comes. I forgot to add that along with guns i am obsessed with bow hunting, i live to stock muleys and also anjoy a night or 2 in a treestand.
    man you are lucky you can shoot to 2000 yards in your backyard, we have trouble finding some spots to shoot over 800 yards!
