    Hey guys,

    Just got back recently from a year-long deployment to Afghanistan with the Oregon Army National Guard. I am back finishing up my Bachelor's degree at the University of Oregon in Eugene. Wondering if there are any distance shooters out there? I will be getting into the 700-1000 yard shooting game very soon (working on my Accuracy Int'l setup now) and don't know of any places around here to shoot that far. I have been going up past McGowan Rifle club onto BLM land that was shown to me by a Weyerhaeuser 'patrolman' who redirects people off their land and onto BLM. Point is I know it's legal to shoot there but it's only 125yrds. Acceptable for my AR's, AKs, and handguns. But not for a .308 bolt gun. Anyway, if you're in the area and know of some legal spots to stretch out a bolt gun's legs, let me know.

    I've lurked on this site for probably 4-5 years so I'm not new in that sense, but new as a member.

    Welcome, and thanks for your service. Need to go east if you want those ranges.
