    Hello, I'm new to this forum and would like to introduce myself. I have always been intrested with long range shooting and have slowly progressed to shooting farther and farther.

    I currently have a Rem VLS .243 Free floated with fiberglass and piller bedding. It shoots 85 gr Sierra HPBT at .25" at the best and I can usaully hold it under 1" unless I'm in a hurry.

    I have a Rem 700 ADL .270 that shoots close to 1" with my reloads for deer.

    And I have a .223 AR 15 Dtech Technologies rifle that is awesome that will hold most factory round at or under an inch.

    Of cousre these are all 100 yard measurements. I would love to practice at farther ranges but the furthest I can shoot is off my deck at 300 yards. And with the 243 I can get 2" groups a 300 fairly easily but the wind is hard on the 85 HPBT with a BC of .282.

    Any way I love this forum and my furthest kill so far is 260 with the 243 on a crow.

    Thanks,
    Scott

    Hey neighbor. I'm from Frankfort. I fish a pay lake in Harrodsburg. The cost of gas has sort of cancelled that lake from my fishing spots. I hunt Henry county and my farthest kill has been on an 8 pt buck at 546 yards. Welcome to the forum.
