Hello from Zumbro Falls area. Just trying to become a good shot at mid to longer ranges. Some day maybe a praire dog hunt.
Getting the gun(s) to shoot well. Getting my trigger skills down, understanding ALL the factors the wind throws at you. It is a challenge. Still want to range old school with mildots, finding out that is a issue also!
Hibbing has up to 600 yd range, private club, but I'm a member and can get you in.
Virginia has a 500 yd range and is also a private club, but again, I'm a member and can get you in.
Virginia just had a precision rifle match; 3 inch gong at 300yds, 4 inch gong at 400 yds and a 5 inch gong at 500 yards. Was very interesting with a quarting head wind gusting to 30 mph and and wind swirling in 3 diferent directions including a dead zone from 500 yds.
