    I’m new here, lived in MI most of my life but have a winter home in AZ due to the great weather, shooting and motorcycle riding. I have hunted, mainly birds my whole life (over 50yrs hunting) and shot clays competitively for about 20 years. I started loading at age 12, 410 Leeloader with a hammer! I recently got into long range target shooting at Ben Avery in AZ and coincidentally was told to be ready to shoot out to as far as 800 yds for and Elk Hunt in Utah the fall. The shots here in Michigan are not long. But I have taken a Carabiou at over 400 in Labrador... looking for a lot of wisdom on loads, etc.

    Welcome. AZ resident here too. Long shots are totally possible for elk and most western game. Practice, practice, and more practice.
