Oregon/Washington mentor wanted

New to the LRH site, been following it for some time.

I'm looking for an experienced long-range shooter to help get me to the next level.
I am 36, shooter for 20 years, game hunter for 10. Once I started to reload, everything changed. Am currently shooting mostly .243 Win, .270 Win, 30-06 and 8mm Mauser. (Please don't tell anyone about the .17HMR, guilty pleasure)

I shoot at least 1-2 days a week and have been focusing on tuning handloads within the 100-200 yd range. I have been upgrading my equipment as the money comes in and am at a solid beginning. I dedicate most of my mental energy to shooting and reloading.

My goal is to be proficient in the 600-800 yd range. I do not believe that I currently have chamberings to be effective and lethal much past that.

I want to work on wind doping and range determination as well as technique and position.

I live in Oregon between Salem and Portland. Any help is appreciated.
