I'm a new guy to the site. I found the site looking for answers regarding scope mounting. I own two center fire rifles but have never taken any game with them. This I hope to amend soon. I live in Iowa, where there is only a special "late center fire season" in the southern counties of the state. Here is where you can start kicking me.... I just read a post in another forum where a junior member wanted to shoot deer at 800 plus yards. Really??? Shooting at an animal at a half mile plus blows my mind. Are there really that many of you guys taking large game like deer and elk at those ranges? I'm not trying to be a jerk, or say it is unethical or call anyone a liar. I just have never heard of such long range shots being taken on a regular basis. Again, I'm only asking to become informed, not irritate anyone..... Feedback?
