I have long wanted to get into long distance shooting, but for one reason or another I never did. I am finally finding myself free enough to pursue this hobby with the dedication it deserves, but I lack any reasonable experience in sooting at long distances. Is there anyone here that can offer the knowledge they have gleened from the sport and more importantly I would like any information on how someone can find training or a mentor for the sport. My goal is to avoid recreating the wheel and learning bad habits along the way. I have also set out to put together a decent rifle to start with, a Rem. 700 in 7mm but again I admit my own shortcommings and would like any reccomendations on good gunsmiths in the Pac NW. Thanks in advance for any help you all can provide.
