Just went to the range Friday to sight in the new scope for my ruger American ranch 7.62×39. Bore sighted @100 yds. then moved to 200 yds, then 300 yds. It shot pretty good for a 16" barrel with wolf ammo. Then took it out ground hog hunting today. Hit 3 hogs, @202yds, 1@313yds, & 1@433yds. I was very pleased.20180525_185234

It really was worth the investment I gave $750 an acre and it is now selling for $2500 an acre in this area. So with the house and shop that we built I am looking at around $500000 in value. Not bad for a 13 year investment.

If that were the targets from one of my “good” rifles, I’d have been a bit depressed! Considering it’s a cheap, stock rifle with cheap factory steel case ammo, I’m happy with it😃

Where are you located? A few years ago we bought 40 acres in a remote area in AZ for $28k but we still have much to do before we can move there. It is typ SW desert but we like that. Also looking for some wooded areas in Idaho or Montana. Then become migratory.
Shooting off or near my porch would be awesome.

While not off our porch our land we will buy in ID, MT or UT will have a range built on it with varying lengths up to hopefully ~300yds. I’ve already got the design in my head. Plus it’ll be awesome for my wife and i’s gun channel. :wink:

I want to us to be able to shoot on it anytime we want. Maybe we will get lucky and find land that borders BLM land…

Cannot tell if that’s sarcasm? No, Bureau of Land Management. aka public land.
