New to the Long Range World. Fresh out the Army, was a Tanker for almost 8 years. Grew up hunting the Dense forests of Northern PA. Now the Gov. sends me some screw around money each month, so I’d like to use that towards learning long range shooting/ hunting as well as want to get a custom rifle built for my western and northern trips. Interested in the skill for my overall preparedness too. I’m wondering what companies you gentlemen have had good success with for various builds as well as any overall tips be that glass, calibers, what have you. Currently I own a .300 Wby backcountry and a 20 year old Savage 25-06. Both suit my needs currently be that East or west, however I want to have built a real long range rig. Currently the skill is not there I’m alright for a tanker out to 300 maybe a little past without bipod just off my ruck, but I’m excited to dive in to learning this new discipline. Any tips and recommendations I’d soak up like a sponge.
