I live in central FL........... a year new to this site and also love it. Worlds of information and knowledgable members as you well know if you've been visiting for 2 years.
I too am eager to learn all I can about long range shooting (my longest kills - 300 yds). I want to get proficient before trying anything further and that all depends on fulfilling my dream to go west again; but for now long range targets are great game.
I have one long range target rifle being finished any day and about ready to have a long range hunting rifle (deer size) built. I already own a semi custom rifle
capable of long range on larger than deer size game.
I have so much to learn and so many rounds to fire before I go for anything alive at long range. Part of this goal is to go to a shooting school in the next 12-18 months.
Good luck and enjoy.
