Ian, I'm just getting started with LR stuff.
Here's my post about upgrading my 7mm-08. Fine accuracy and reduced recoil are what I'm after: Seeking accuracy and recoil reduction in 7mm-08 rifle
One of my ranges has a 200 yard backstop; once I finish putting this rifle together and shooting tight (-1") at 200, I'll look for ranges with greater distances available to shoot and maybe beginner competition.
My son died a few years ago. He was just a teenager. I gave up hunting and many other things. This is my first step into an activity that I feel any motivation to do. It's become something of an obsession, as direly needed distractions can.
