    Long range means different thing to different people. To me it means out to a mile or more.
    308 is a good caliber. The brake is not allowed in most competitions FTR & F Open. The scope will be the limiting factor in your present set up. I use this for my Trajectory calculation. http://www.jbmballistics.com/cgi-bin...j_simp-5.1.cgi
    It lets you select the bullet and enter the rest of the info, choose the distance, hit calculate and print off a copy of the results. You need to know the muzzle velocity to use jbm ballistics.
    Enjoy your 308 and learn to shoot it. Buy good brass and read up on all the sorting and weighing/volume tricks. Some even weigh and sort bullets(not me). I buy brass by the thousand and weigh them into lots. tired good night
    The challenge of retirement is how to spend time without spending money.
    There is no place in an anti's head where reason can enter. from a Napoleon saying with a tweak.
    Look around is there someone you can introduce to shooting because thatís the only way we will buck the anti gun trend sweeping Canada! "tigrr 2006"

    Long range for me today unfortunately means anything over 50 yards as that is the greatest distance I can find in town!!! My goal is to be upwards of a mile and further if possible. What I need is for someone to sit beside me and walk me through using the mildot, calculating distances, windage and sending it down range. As for my scope, I intended it to get me through trying everything out to see if I really wanted to get into the sport as I don't hunt so have no need outside of precision shooting. I know it's not the best but I figured it would work for now

    A few questions:
    1. Have you found a bullet/powder combo to get you in the .2 inch 3 shot group at a 100?
    2. Do you reload?
    3. Describe shooting set-up, rest, bags, bipod.
    4. Prone or bench?

    After finding the best bullet powder recipe I cronograph my rounds to find what speed they are going. Then I punch that info into a ballistic program and get my elevation settings. So before I go to shoot longer ranges I know my come-ups to reach the target at 100 - 200 - 300. I don't calculate it at the range. My come-ups are printed out on a paper to match each different bullet weight and caliber.
    I can't find that scope?? 6-12X24

    Here's Part 1,

    Very nice job on the videos and a good watch. I think I will try the same as you with a f-class shoot. Got to work up a load first.
