Hello,
Been shooting long range for a while now, since I was about 14 when we went on the first p-dog trip and made my first 500 yard kill. Im 23 now, own a couple rifles of my own for hunting and target shooting past 500 yards. I consider my self a pretty good shot but looking around the forum here I have plenty to learn

Couple of my rifles
There is the 243 Super Rock Chucker, with the 30" Hart barrel, Fajen stock, EGW scope mount, and Leupold 6-18x scope. Its a 25-06 necked down and blown out pushes a 70gr SMK at 3800fps into 1/4MOA groups.





Than the Remington 700 25-06 with 24" bull barrel, 8-32x Burris scope, Boyds laminate stock, and harris bipod, this is one of my hunting rifles, shoots like a target rifle though.


I have a couple of AR-15's I built that I use for hunting, on in 6.8 SPC the other in 223/556.

I am also thinking about get a 300 WSM for 1000 yard plus target shoot.

Thank you for the welcome, my girlfriend will be getting a Savage 12 in 223 from my dad for Christmas so we have a few "long" range guns in our house. The Remington 25-06 is my pride though I had that build when I turned 18 and have been shooting steel and killing p-dogs with it out to 900 yards since. The 243 was a new to my safe last summer and came with in 3" at 1100 yards of killing a p-dog with it in Montana this past summer.

I am actually from Michigan, I just resently moved here to Rock Springs. So this hunting season went horrible for me, I didnt get a single tag being a Non resident for a full year is rough. I will however be after deer, antelope, elk, and anything else I can get a tag for next year.

My boss does like to coyote hunting and some of the other guys in the office enjoy rabbit hunting so I will be going after those critters this year.

I also just solved my want for a 300 WSM just moments ago. I purchased a Time Precision Action, with a Krieger barrel, and HS Perision stock....hopefully I can get some 1000 yard shooting in with it over the summer.

Welcome aboard.

Rock Springs is a bit east of here but maybe we'll cross paths some day.

Nice rigs.

BTW, if you get on top of a high enough butte you can see MI from there.:D

Welcome to LRH. Those are some real good rifles you have. That wildcat 243 sounds very cool. I've got a Sendero 25-06 and a 300
WSM too. The 25-06 is a great shooter and I love shooting it.

Next hunting season will be here before you know it and no doubt it will be a lot of fun. Keep us posted.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
