Hi all I just came across you folks and thought i would drop in and see what i could learn. Where i live and hunt there is alot of posibilities for long range shots nothing to see a moose out at 1500 yards. Now thats just a little to far for me at the present time. But last season i nailed this 18 pointer at alittle over 500 yards. Now i know that this aint "Long range" but I'm sorry to say that it took me 6 shots to put a bullet into him. It was the money shot heart/lung and went down in about 30 seconds. I freely admit that it was a fluke shot and looking back I never should have taken that shot because i didnt have the skill to make a clean kill. Thats why i'm here, to learn. I got a Remington model 700 7mm rem mag that i hand load the shells for. I use winchester brass with reloader 22 powder and Nosler 175 grain partitioning bullets. These bullets seem to give me a real good grouping at 100 yards about 3/4 inch (at least i think that is good) What i want to know is what are some of the things that I could do to this gun to make it a real long range gun, what are some of the things that i could read, are some of the modifications? O BTW the scope is a bushnell 3x9x40 Trophy.
