You sound pretty good. I will be a noob as a rifle shooter. I can hold my own with a 9mm, 38 special and a 12 ga. coach gun, but I know I have a lot to learn about being a proficient rifle shooter. But the process will be fun. I look forward to learning and getting better. It will be a long time before I try any distance like what you describe.
Still trying to get used to a scope. Been looking through it and making adjustments. Some times it seems great, other times it seems like half my field of vision through the tube is off. Have to get the cheek placement down and my positioning of the rifle.
Thanks for the detailed info.

Thanks for the complement but you don't have to shoot MOA to take a deer humanely. Paper plate accurate is good enough. Doing it consistently in the real world is the tricky part and the main reason for bringing up conditions, mainly wind.

Make sure and try different ammunition. It can really make a difference and it doesn't necessarily have to be the most expensive stuff out there. My son was shooting $40 a box 30-06 and was very frustrated with his groups. He switched to $23 a box Hornady Whitetail and instantly got a MOA group at 100yds. Go figure?

Sounds like you're willing to put the time in and learn your rifle. I'm still learning and that's half the fun of it.

Have a good one.......
