New member from Michigan. Got into precision reloading and long range shooting about 22 month ago. Excited to learn as much as possible and get better.

Welcome to a great group of shooters with a wealth of knowledge based on results not opinions or biases.

Thanks @RUM MAN . I make it down to Youngs Long Shot in Wolcotville, Indiana to shoot. Became a member in May and have been steadily getting better. I need to learn a lot more about wind reading and ballistics to really go to the next level.

Welcome! I live about 20 miles outside of Lansing. I moved up here last September. Let me know if you’re interested in meeting up and possibly shooting sometime.

Welcome. You came to the right place.

Do you have a favorite cartridge? You can't say all of them....too easy.

Thanks @Spreedizzle .

@Proud Vet I'm mostly a late bloomer when it comes to gun ownership. I was too broke growing up to be able to afford much. Once I finished school and quit drinking I turned my attention to shooting and started my adventure into long range shooting by picking up a 6.5 Creedmoor in a Tikka CTR rifle. Then once I got a little more serious I picked up a 6.5 PRC. Lastly I picked up a rifle in 300 WM and would like to do a hunt out west in the next 3 to 4 years. For now I would have to say my favorite is the 6.5 PRC, although there are so many other calibers I would like to try.

I hear you about the numerous calibers but at least you have 3 of some of the most popular
and proven in hand. The 6.5 PRC will be my next I imagine.

I would also like to get back out west for a hunt. Spent time there in the Air Force many years
ago and did get to hunt Mule deer. Had deer all around but no horns. Kinda why I would like
another chance.

Good luck and once again, welcome.

Once the weather freezes things up I have a spot we could meet and shoot . Its only 1900 yards or so but should be fun anyway ! I'm going after the 2 mile in November out west !

@RUM MAN I laughed at the thought of you saying "only 1900" yards. That's almost twice as far as I have ever shot and over a mile. You must be a pretty seasoned vet in order to shoot out to 2 miles; impressive. I'm curious what you shoot out that far?

Welcome. I’m from Troy originally and live in AZ now. I go back to Michigan almost every November for deer season. We hunt just outside Big Rapids. You definitely need to make it out west and experience different types of hunting.

No a Vet but thanks to all for there Service!

I just had a quest after my Open Heart Surgery to go long ! I remember when 500 was like way to far ! Lol
Lots of trigger time and data work to get to my furthest of 1.72 miles !
I have a few 338 Edges running the 300 gr bergers! It's just a goal or a bucket list of mine to hit 2 miles ! Something my kids can tell stories about after I'm gone !
