tough in New England
I've been watching this sight ever since I built a 700 in .300RUM. Much information found within the blogs has gone into the decision making of what has become known as the dino killer. Long range shooting in the north east is only for the few who are serious enough to invest in the proper equipment, get the tutelage to use it correctly and seek out a club with a range to use that equipment. I envy you guys that can shoot 600-1000 yard "out back"
Here in Massachusetts we hunt with a 12g. Ammo, optics and anything designated for long range hunting; I have had to order on line. Store owners look at me as nuts when I ask for 210gr. 30 cal bullets. Iv'e come to grips with the fact "i'm an odd duck"
