Yes it is, I enjoy sharing sharing experiences, equipment, techniques and reloading practices for long range hunting and target shooting.
I believe the guys, me included, that post long range matches are trying to present opertunities for people to see first hand what it's all about. It's hard to imagine someone has the equipment and ability shoot a 1.5" 5 shot group at 500 yards or a 5" 10 shot group at a 1000.
There are a ton of local groung hog matches the have factory classes which offer an affordable, fun and challenging way to experience first hand, long range shooting.
I think successful long range shooting begins in the reloading room, those practices are far more involved than stuffing powder bullet and primers into a case for the average deer hunter. the moderators have their hands full as it is but I think when talking about reloading for this it should kept in this forum. Too many times the guy that's happy getting 3 shots on a pie plate disses what an experienced marksman has to offer, and there are plenty of both on here.
Successful long range shooting and hunting takes expensive equipment and lots of time.
I'd love to see this category take off again, I think the average, couple of times a year shooter and reloader could pick up a lot tips to improve group size
