    So much for getting a short action built. Got a 700 long action for a really good price and got a 300 WM built.

    The farthest I can safely shoot on my place is 700 yards. The gun shoots great, I shoot decent.

    Supposed to shoot it this weekend. 200-1100 known distance steel shoot.

    I'm not much for shooting unless I'm shooting at meat, but nothing quite satisfies like a custom anything. It's yours and only yours ! A couple years ago I had a .280 Rem built by Alamo Precision here in Texas. Like you said, it's great and I'm decent. About as far as I'll ever shoot in the places I hunt is 250/300 yards, but it's satisfying to know I could stretch that if I had to. I did have fun working up a load with the bullet I wanted to shoot.

    Good looking rifle there BTW !

    I think it is good to practice further than you let yourself shoot. I will shoot my bow out to 70 yards but only shoot game out to 40.

    Shot my first competition with the .300 last Sunday. Mostly a fun shoot. Furthest target was 1100 yards.
