Newbie to the site form West by God Virginia

Hello All. A little bout myself...I Love my God, my Family, and my Guns. I am a Marine Corps vet. I have always been fascinated with long range shooting and currently "building" my first long range rifle (Browning A Bolt composite stalker in 300 win mag)...on a tight budget, mind you. I am also just getting started in reloading for 300 wm, and 243. Any tips?

Thanks,
DCrouse

At 70 I am not a new guy that learned to shoot with a a 22 shorts only Remington 241 built on Browning's patent still being built today. I grew up in the southwestern part of Oklahoma in a target rich environment of jack rabbits in the 50's. One morning I ran over 10 in 9 miles with the right font tire on the road. We lost the control effort. Shooting 15 or 20 a day was a usual day.

The coyotes took care of the jack rabbits and got me into long range shooting with Remington 788 in Remington 6 mm. I was fine out 450 to 500 yards and that's where I ran out with out of skill in both shooting an loading.

I should have look at the old 788 and see if the bores any good after all these years. I put up everything else right. I just haven't got to it yet because the stock is cracked.
