Hi everyone,

Ranger.RSA here from South Africa. Just getting into the long distance shooting thing (bought a 6.5 Creedmoor on Tuesday) but have been burning powder in various forms for a few years.

Looking forward to learning more from you all.

Welcome to the site.
You should plan a trip sometime to the USA and scout out places to immigrate to over here just in case you need a Plan B for getting out of SA.

Welcome. Does ranger mean you hunt poachers? I had to look it up, it can mean a few different things here.

Yeah, we wanna hear some stories about that for sure regardless. Bear pit is where the bullshitting goes on and story swapping.

Thanks all for the welcome. "Ranger" comes from the fact that I'm a volunteer game ranger at our local game reserve, have been for about 12 years. Also my first bakkie ("truck" as you know it) was a Ford Ranger which I loved.

My goal with the 6.5CM is to shoot 1000m. It will take a while to get there I'm sure but I will get there. Furthest I have shot is 400m with my hunting rifle, a 30-06.
Been shooting IPSA pistol, rifle and shotgun for a while now, long time bowhunter and a rifle hunter on occasion. It's now time to shoot past 400m...
