I have read many of the forums as they pop up on Google searches but have never posted. I appreciate all of the contributions and I have learned a lot on here. I am an engineer and have a thing for accurate rifles; I like other guns as well. I get the Long Range Hunting thing and have made numerous long shots myself, but doing that successfully requires well tuned gear. I am 50+ years old and have hunted my entire life. My current passion is backpack hunting for elk.
