    I thought that this forum was a long range shooting magazine???

    There are no "paper" mags of the sort due to the smaller market niche, plus most shooters aren't progressive enough to appreciated LR hunting/shooting.....

    Every aspect/consideration for shooting to 1 mile I've found here.

    The Varmint Hunter. Put out by VHA, 4 times per year. Doesn't deal with large caliber/big game a whole lot, but LR nonetheless. They have 500, 1000, 1500 and maybe even 2000 yd clubs now. The mag is around 200 pages and alot of color illustrations.

    The Varmint Hunter Magazine | The Varmint Hunter | Varmint Hunters Magazine

    Peterson's Rifle Shooter is a distant 2nd place IMO.

    I never cared for gun magazines, no matter what specific category they targeted. The articles are written by people who generally lack sufficient knowledge in order to accurately write about the subject they're writing about. Granted, much of what you may read in mags may be credible, but I've seen some grossly mistaken statements and claims; some of which are just unbelievabely ridiculous. An example of one such statement was about how border patrol agents in Southern California recently discovered two tunnels under the border along with a seizure of 50 tons of marijuana. The VERY NEXT SENTENCE that followed was, "That's a million pounds."
    Do the math.

    Precision Shooting is what you are looking for. Excellent magazine for various calibers short and long distances and have great articles. My dad has been a subscriber for as long as I can remember. No bs and I think articles are actually done with how the product performs in mind not how much you are paying in advertising and get a real wiz bang article like most out there. If you call them I believe they will send you the first one for free to see if you like it.

    This is a great place but for where I don't get wifi varmint hunter is the best. Lots of in depth articles details and knowledgable writers. Precision shooting is also good but it seems to me that they get a bit too focused on getting a 50 year old factory or other inherently not so accurat gun to see what it can do as of late A lot of it doesn't seem to precision to me it's great for those who are into the history of certain guns. That said you will prob like both as there is nothing else even close to good in terms of firearms mags in my opinion

    +1 on the old stuff but they go in depth on a lot of new stuff too. They are both made by the same company to my knowledge. Cant go wrong getting them both!

    Actually if you look at the forums list this place is everything thing but LRH. BB guns, turkeys, fly fishing, .22 shorts, atlatl, crossbows, mathphews, etc etc.

    In answer to the gentleman's question I'd say "Precision Shooting" is the closest paper magazine that address real long range shooting 'stuff' . Also Christensen Arms has their own mag now and it is advertised as an LRH magazine. Good luck.
