Or............. www.shooterready.com
This is Stewart Wilson's original training site. If you're not sure who he is..... He developed the Windrunner series of rifles. This is him at the USMC High Angle Range in Hawthorne making 1 mile shots.



I have one of his proto-type rifles.

thank you for the sermon DR, but I'm a little confused what has prompted this? there really isn't any talk here about long range shooting other than cartridges being capable of reaching the ranges.

also, I have taken 300 yard shots on game and brought home meat so I would apreciate it if we can avoid turning this into an ethical discussion. Ethics are subjective and unique to each individual, there is no set value for ethical and unethical, especially when it comes to hunting. please leave them at the door. every one of the hunts that I took last year were considered to be unethical by one person or another and every tag I worked on was filled, with minimal suffering from the animals I hunted.

thank you.

Probably just trying to stir something up. Bench rest or no as long as your pulling the trigger, you still shooting. Also, if my dad can kill a ground hog from 400 yards from the hood of his truck with 1 round to the head, that's not really unethical.

And saying words like "armchair sniper" is going to cause nothing but trouble among the long distance bench rest shooters.

I wouldn't read too much into phrases like "armchair sniper", "mall ninja", "Obama"... people on this site throw those around a lot(myself included). there are a heck of a lot of people that "know" a lot about long range shoot from what they've read in magazines but few have ever actually done it and really shouldn't be offering advice because much of that is second hand and possible out of context. right now on this site there is a thread of a fellow who wants to start shooting long range with little rifle experience, a person on there actually suggested that he buy a $3500 338 Lapua with a $2500 scope. there are many who refer to themselves as snipers who have never actually received the title from an official marksmanship school, and there are some truly terrible shots that think that the more expensive rig you have the better your shot will be, this is not always the case.

For a moment I thought you were talking about me

And that sounds awfully like something my dad would want me to get.

not unless you have two different user accounts.
I ramble at times, not really geared at anyone in particular.
