In today’s episode, I bring my good friend on Jon Pynch, who is probably one of the more talented long range shooters that I know. Jon has been doing precision rifle competitions for quite a while now and is basically a book of knowledge when it comes to long-range shooting. Jon and I sit down and talk about the basics of long range shooting and hunting, from what calibers to choose from, the actual weight of your gun, to load development. We also talk a bit about different shooting situations, and what “ethical” range is for different individuals. I hope you guys enjoy this episode, thanks for tuning in!
