Hi folks, Just as the header indicates, Nicky New Guy here. By way of introduction, 67 years old, newly retired and believe I'd like to do some shooting. But, don't know much about how to get started and what type of matches I'd like to shoot. I do know this is going to be for fun, with 67 year old eyes, well you know what I mean....... I do have a rifle, now remember I'm doing this for fun, it's a Rem. 700 ADL in 308 caliber with a plastic stock and heavy contour barrel with 1:12 twist.. I think I might like to shoot out to 600 yards or a bit further, again, I'll be competing with myself. One of the next things on my list is to buy a scope but I'm holding off till I have an idea on what I'm going to need in regards to optics. Theres those 67 year ols eyes again! A little more back ground, I've reloaded shotgun shells for several years and would like to reload for the 308. From what I've been able to gather on this site reloading center fire is a bit different than shot gun shells. However I enjoy reloading and I want to do so for the 308. Any insight that you folks would like to share about shooting, types of matches and optics would be greatly appreciated. Wish I knew someone who did this but that's not the case. I live in central Ohio and would like to learn of any ranges that I could visit where they do some medium to long range (up to 1000 yard) shooting would be great. Thanks for your help and hope your having a great day.
