    Hi, I've been looking around on here for awhile now and there seems to be a wealth of knowledge so I decided to sign up. I have always been interested in reaching out a ways and now it's a little bit of an obession.

    Welcome to LongRangeHunting. Beware of that obsession, it'll get expensive. :)

    For deer I have a Remington 700 that is chambered in 30-338 Win and is bushed, lapped, and a sako extractor was put in when the bolt face was opened up. I shot 165gr nosler ballistics and have shot 1 1/4 in groups at 500m. My dad and I built an M40A5 this winter and have been doing a little playing with it but don't have it quite right yet. I also have a 6BR benchrest gun with a bat action. These are the rifles I use for longrange right now but I want to build a .338 rifle to really get out there. We also shoot a lot of pistol and long and short range tactical rifle.
