New member, but long time shooter.
As my first post on this site I thought that I would make it an introduction. My name is Branden, from Kansas City, Mo. I've been shooting for a long time, and I have a passion for long range precision shooting. I've not done a ton of hunting, however i'm not opposed to it, and wish that I had the ability to do more of it. Since i'm a rather lazy hunter, I prefer to sit on a hill overlooking a large area during deer season to increase the probability of seeing a deer, and if it's just out of range, i'll still be far enough that I can likely stalk (read 'walk') close enough to get within a range that i'm confident of making a good shot.
My bang stick of choice is a Savage 10 action in .308, McGowan 1:10 match barrel cut to 20", B&C Tactical stock with black marine tex texturing and the remainder of the stock painted grey. The scope is a Leupold Mk4 3.5-10 with M3 turrets and Mil-dot reticule.
Bullet of choice for the time being is a 208 Amax pushed with Reloader 17 to 2560fps in Lapua brass. 100 yard accuracy isn't anything to write home about, however I recently printed a .56" 200 yard group, and a 1-1/4" 400 yard group. The 400 yard group was luck, the 500 yard group I shot right after that was 5".
I spend most of my time on some other sites that are more oriented toward the tactical marksmen, however this site appears to have a lot of great articles that pertain to any marksmen be it a hunter, a tactical shooter, or a casual plinker. In all honesty I will likely be lurking far more than posting, and when I start to type, I always inevitably end up reading like a keyboard commando.
Now i'm off to start my quest of reading all interesting threads on this site so I can get "caught up" so to say.
