"It's just like old Mexico...but without the smell!" Hi all, new to the forum and new to long range shooting. I'm an avid hunter (and professional wildlife biologist) and have always been a shot gunner and bow kind of guy. Picked up my first rifle about 7 years agao, and beautiful original Remington 700 Mountain rifle (real wood) in the mighty 280 rem. I'm ashamed to admit now that I never thought of it as a long range rifle (short bbl, light weight gun) but plan on starting loading some long loads for it. On a whim (not usually like me) I recently bought a 700 in 300 WSM. I'm not really a 30 cal fan, but it was a deal I could not pass up. I joined this forum to learn more about the round, get bullet and load info, and get some practice tips. Cheers!
