I have been practicing my shooting in preparation for a hunt in SA next year. I wanted to practice so I bought a 30-06 and plan on taking it with me. I have shot over 150 rounds so far practicing. I don't reload and will be using factory loads so I understand I am losing some accuracy right from the start. I have been shooting off of sticks, keeping both eyes open, wrapping the sling around for extra stability, working on not flinching (I bought a Limb Saver pad and it made a HUGE difference in felt recoil), trigger finger placement, etc. I have improved but quite frankly I would be very uneasy about any shot over 150 yards. I have been reading lots of the hunting reports and it is not unusual in them to see guys taking 250-300 yard shots. I will be hunting in the Limpopo region the first 10 days of May so my guess is there will still be a decent amount of vegetation so it might not be that big of a deal. I have been using a deer sized target and can hit the lung, heart area consistently but am far from "driving tacks." As some background I live in Indiana where rifles for deer are not allowed so I have never practiced taking long range shots. I am going to talk to my PH and explain that I would like to spot and stalk to try and get as close as possible. I walk a lot on my job so I am in pretty good shape for my age. My question to all is what would you feel as a" comfortable" grouping at 100 yards? I feel pretty inadequate reading many of the reports and some of the shots that were taken. I definitely do not want to miss or worse wound and lose an animal so I will keep hitting the range. Thanks in advance for any replies.
