first time on this forum or any other for that mater. "captgoul" was my handle many years ago. Gave to me by the Ticondaroga. If anyone recognizes it, let me know. Hunt squirrel, rabbits, and eat them all. Just became interested in long range shooting. have a Marlin xl7 308, 26" barrel, 6x24x50mm scope. (sniper). I guess from that you can tell I'm poor. Hope to learn from the more experienced, and maybe someday help the less. Thanks in advance to all, Captgoul.
