Get some 30-06 snap caps and dry fire every day. If you have someone to help you, have them balance a dime on your rifle barrel just behind the front site. Your goal is 5 continuous dry fires without “Dropping the Dime” That will help save ammo money and let you get lots of practice. For ethical long range shooting find the “Point Blank” Range to zero your scope for the ammo you’ll be hunting with. on our 30-06 shooting factory 180 grain Swift A-Frames we’er zeroed at 200 yards. Point Blank zero is the sweet spot where the bullets trajectory will be within the 6 inch kill zone from 50 to 300 yards. 300 yards being what most find as the ethical maximum range for clean kills. (if 18year olds in basic training can qualify at 300 yards with open sights you can do it with a scope) The most important rule is if your going to take shots out past 100 yards you must practice at those longer ranges until you can hit a 6 inch target 5 for 5 shots. Got to go my wife and I are off to the range today. Shooting drill 150 yard steel plate followed by 250 yard plate to practice follow up shots... great fun.
