Mentor in Harrisburg/Lancaster area

Hi Guys,

I've hunted forever, but I'm new to LR shooting, and was looking for someone to tag along with at the range, learn some of the basics for calculating bullet impact (MOA) and so on. I'm in Manheim area.

I have a rifle being built as we speak, but won't likely have it until mid-November. My current rifles have good hunting scopes without turrets.

Thanks!

Dan.

I didn't read this until now so I apologize for that. What type of hunting are you looking to tag along with? Summer groundhog shooting or fall deer hunting? Or whatever? I'm not that close but not really that far either.

Re: Mentor in Harrisburg/Lancaster area

Joel, I'm in Lititz, next town east from Manheim and I'd like to get under that wing if it suits you guys.

I'm not shooting anything custom, but the load I'm using now groups three under 3/16" at 100 yards. I don't feel that's very difficult, but I'm looking to do some longer shooting and groundhogs would be fun. Rifle is primarily for deer hunting.

I just sent my application in for Penn Dutch as they go out to 400 yards.

My brother in law and I are going out to Stewartstown in August for a groundhog shoot with DennisPA on the 19th.

Re: Mentor in Harrisburg/Lancaster area

Hi guys. Sorry I haven't checked this thread in a while! I'll pm you guys when I'm back at my PC. On a business trip and replying on mobile at the moment. I'd love to meet up. I'm not looking to make you drag me along hunting, but rather just get in on some LR range time. I'm slammed until about october (wedding, honeymoon and other bothersome, time consuming activites) but I'd love to get out this fall. In late oct I should have my rifle, which is:

338 rum
Stiller action
26 inch Benchmark SS fluted #5
Kdf muzzle brake
McMillan A3 Sporter stock
Jewell trigger
Nightforce 5.5-22x50 w/ zero stop on ultralight rings

Don't let your bride to be see the line in red in the same sentence as "wedding and honeymoon."

Sounds like a nice build. Who's doing the work for you?
