    just got sucked into elr benchrest shooting.
    i was at the townsend mt 2k elr match last weekend.
    the scope base on my "hunter" class rifle came loose and i did not catch it.
    i had no success and ruined someone else's target.

    i will continue to shoot in the hunter class but am planing a 338 edge build.
    i compete..i do not hunt. (nothing wrong with hunting/hunters, i just did not grow up with it)
    retired in lovely sun city az

    We'll, just because you didn't grow up hunting doesn't mean you can't start. Keep an open mind and good luck with your pursuit.

    You should come out to practice on some long range steel at Cowtown in Peoria. We send lead all over that mountainside.

    Welcome! I too am a new member. Deer hunter in the fall, and prairie dogs in the summer. Have developed an interest in Long Range shooting.
