I've been a shooter and hunter for a good majority of my life. Early on, I was taught the fundamentals of marksmanship and safe gun practices. Until somewhat recently I have never got into long range precision shooting. With a few recent purchases, I have changed the way I shoot. Step one of my master plan was to consolidate my rifles to a single, highly available round like the 7.62 NATO. match grade ammo is relatively cheap at $19/box. Then I was off to buy a premium scope. Now I am working on my technique by shooting a lot more. Does anyone else shoot long range? I want to be proficient at 500 and really want to do so 1,000 yard if I can find a place.
