Newish to long range hunting/shooting from Helena, MT

Howdy I'm newish to long range hunting/shooting but enjoying it immensly. I have a. Mossberg .243 win in which I shoot 75 grn V-max handloads grouping about 1/2 in at 100 yards. This primarily my yote gun but will be my kids hunting rifle when they are old enough. A 17 HMR Savage primarily squirrel and groundhog hunting. An old Weatherby 7mm mag that I shoot 175 grn nosler partion handloads. It groups just over 1/2 in at 100 yds. And I'm currently building up a rem 700 in 30-06.

Thanks guys. I will have to check out that shoot this summer. By then I should have the new stock, trigger, and scope on my remmy and should have time to get a good accurate load worked up and practice with it. And I will definetly take any advice and help I can get! I also am going to be putting in for an antelope tag for the townsend area.
