Hi all I am finding the information and knowledge of long range shooting in this forum to be awesome. In my area the potential for long range shooting is excellent and owing to my profession as a hunting guide I really enjoy watching my clients succeed with long range shots. I am fortunate enough to have an area set aside for long range hunting. The block is mentioned on my website www.ballisticstudies.com we call this block Lacey's. Shots come at all ranges but if you look at the photo gallery you will see that the hunter is surrounded by ridges out to ranges beyond 1 mile, each holding small groups of animals. (unfortunately our site cannot be found through google yet so users must type the URL into the address bar.) It is good to see a site concerned with extreme accuracy and all that stems from this research. I currently use a 7mmRem mag with the 162 grain Amax for long shots which is a good combination without excessive throat erosion. On our Razorback hunting block I always pre-advise clients that shots on pigs can be difficult and on this block, shots seem to average 300 yards with pigs moving erratically. Last week a boar appeared at the bush edge at 300 yards exactly, trotted across to 359 yards and paused to eat before trotting to 451 yards for another scrounge. Although many clients advise me that they are set up for atleast 300 yard shots, it is surprising how many people give me a blank look when a pig is located at these ranges and then admit that they do not have any idea where their rifle is shooting at anything beyond 200 yards. Long range sniping for boar is extremely enjoyable and it is a real shame when people misss out on these shots. Right now there is a big boar (about the size of a yearling cattle beast albeit with its legs cut down) living on a ridge behind our house. He has gotten vey cunning with age but could be taken from the opposing ridge (900yards) using a long range rig. Cheers, Nathan.
