    Last night while on MCR's website, he had a link to precisionlongrangehunter.com and I used to be a member of that forum and I recall Ric Horst was the owner/host. I hope I'm not out of line asking about this on LRH, but it defaulted to high country shooters.

    The layout looked the same from what I remember. Is this Ric's site?

    Interesting. I guess I live in the dark a bit. Are there other sites that are geared mainly about long range hunting or extreme long range?

    Well, when I first learned of this site, it was within a year or so that I found another site and it was called something like PRECISIONLONGRANGEHUNTER.COM

    To the best of my knowledge, there must have been something negative happen on this or another site between "Ric" and the other site owner so Ric started his own long range hunting forums. It seemed to get a slow start and like many of us, we stuck to the forums that got a lot of traffic to get questions answered, so I kept up with the other forums I frequented but still checked in with precisionlongrangehunter.com

    After having a go at it for some time, I think Ric shut down his website for unknown reasons to me. My guess is that it was slow with traffic. I want to say I remember him coming back here but haven't seen any posts.

    In fact, I have been away for long periods of time but I'm in the last year of 3 on a task I've been working on so during Christmas break I started up on the forums again and have yet to slip away but that is coming soon.

    I tend to log in and read mostly but have been posting more lately.

    Here's an article about Ric

    7mm WSM -- High-Country Hunter

    Curiously when you google Ric Horst you get this:

    I thought Ric was informative and I hoped his site gained members.

    Guys that are shooting past 1000 on a regular basis and looking to share tactics, and experiences with all involved. Both hunting and target. I have come to believe that there are definate differences between shooting to 800 and 1800 and there are things that dont work for both.

    I do read some on the snipershide ELR forum. but looking for something different. I am mostly into long range hunting and also ELR to well past a mile. I have talked to the admin here about an ELR forum but it is still in the deciding stages.

    ELR = "extended long range?"

    Are you talking so far away that you have to get the angled mounts on your rifle where the scope and muzzle literally look like their lines of site converge? I've seen those types of mounts.

    What I am shooting now only takes 60 to 80 moa of elevation. That is pretty easy to get with a 30 ~ 40 moa canted rail base and a good scope with 100 moa elevation. And you can still get a 100 yard zero.

    I sent an email to someone that would know if precisionlongrangehunter.com is shut down. If it is I'll let you know, and correct the link on Kevin's web site. I can tell you it certainly doesn't look the same.

    Well I knew precisionlongrangehunter no longer existed. That is why I asked if it is now highcountryshooters.

    Makes sense because the link on Kevin's webpage still had the former listed as a "link" and when you click it you will get to highcountryshooters.

    The layout looked familiar with many of the thread titles like "front portch" etc. But it's been a few years since the Precision site was up and running too.

    I participated on the forum it when it was precision long range shooters, but when it changed to the different forum, it didn't seem to like my computer and I had continuing difficulties logging on. eventualy I stopped going back.
