Although I am technically a new member I have been reading through the forum on a regular basis for several years. I have been shooting, reloading and hunting since I was a youngster. I don't typically shoot more than 500 yards but I have an increasing desire to work on extending my effective range. For hunting, I primarily chase elk with a bow as I thrive on the interaction. I currently have a Weatherby 30-378 and Fierce Fury 28 Nosler for big game. I have started working with a local bench shooter to improve my approach to load development which has brought to light my knowledge gaps.
