I hope to go beyond 500 yards.

Here on the farm I have two benches set up in the big hayfield and have a lasered 400 yard range. I have flags and marker post every 100 yards and target frames at 100, 200, 300 and 400 yards. At 400 yards, a groundhog has a burrow directly below the target frame! Maybe he/she has a death wish. I dunno. I know I will not harm the varmit.

My range faces West so the sun is not a problem in the mornings. Our winds are prevailing westerlies with an occasional North or South wind. I am working with the .243 and .25-06 at present. I shoot an average of twice a week at all distances. I am learning as I go. Many things I am relearning.
