    Merry Christmas to all from NW Missouri. I am just starting to catch the long range bug, and plan to do lots of reading on the site while it is nice and cold outside. I have a Sako 75 in 7mm STW and made my first long range shot on a deer this year, well not long range compared to many others on the site, but long for me (384 yards). My previous long shot was just a hair over 100 yards, and most have been much shorter, so this was a major step.
    The main farm I hunt has some large crop and CRP fields, so 1/2 mile plus shots are available. The problem is, 10 yard shots are available also, so bullet selection is difficult. I have been shooting 160 grain Accubonds, but if anyone has any suggestions for something that has worked better for them, let me know.

    Welcome, if the accubonds shoot well in your rifle, pick your shot on closer animals.
