    Hi All. My name is Tony (AKA Powerfisher) and I have just started to research Long Range Hunting and this site was highly recomended. I cant spell very good and I have to re-read things a few times for it to sink in. I am not new to shooting or hunting, just to long range. I load my own and right now I am shooting a Remington 700 SPS in a 22/250 26" Hvy BBL w/1:14 TR. I have a Nikko Stirling 6X24X44 on the top. My limit is about 400yds with a .55gr pill. I am working up a load for a 60gr VMAX but I dont know if my 1:14 will keep it true. I enjoy learning things the hard way so thats my current project. Right now I am researching what caliber I want my action in so I can start building. I live in South Lake Tahoe, CA and hunt in CA and NV. Looking forward to everybodies input. Happy Hunting.

    Speaking of re-reading, I am on my second time through the book "Precision Shooting at 1000 Yards" I dont know what to build.....I am a bit closer though...I think. Thanks for the welcome and I hope to be able to ask questions one day soon.

    Welcome to the site! great info here.

    Good luck on your quest for what caliber to build! I would post under one of the many sub-forums and ask there, outlining what you want the caliber for, and im sure you'd get loads of informative answers. For practice and hunting out to 1000 (not ideal at 800-1000, too much drift IMHO) it's hard to go wrong with a .308 win.
