Hello all -
I've been reading a couple of weeks now and have been taking this all in. I'm no long range shooter at this time but I do hope to learn how. As most of you can guess, long range in Alabama is about 200 yds on a powerline somewhere.
I'm going on my first elk hunt - it is my first hunt out west in fact - in October to Colorado. My guide tells me to expect shots out to about 300 yds where we will be hunting so I have a good bit to learn. I've shot out to 200 on a range but 300 & 400 yds is something I've never had the opportunity to try.
I've never owned a custom rifle and I don't know anything about accurizing my factory rifles. I shoot a Winchester Model 70 (post 64) Featherweight in 30-06 and a Interarms Mk X Mannlicher in .308.
I plan to lean on you experts here for advice, assistance, and encouragement. If I post something really stupid please bear with me and remember that you have a true novice on your hands here.
