I usually stay in Campfire but ever now and then I peek into this area. I wish there was a truthful manner to offer help for Hunters and Shooters desiring to become knowledgeable (many diverse areas) and inter a "Self Quest" to be the best; You are capable of.
I stuck some items below. It may help a reader and maybe even some whom Post.
Investing in, oneself is a good investment.

So Yer a MM'ey shooter/hunter. See below for fun and social joys and match yourself with/against other old farts + Young ones also...
The "mid-range" (600 Yards) match was on Wednesday, with much calmer winds. Each shooter shot "three" 20 shot matches at 600 yards.
..... the Palma individual match and the start of the Grand Aggregate. We had a few no-shows, but still came close to our daily limit of 360 shooters. For the first time in the history of our range, we ran all 100 targets up into the air. What an amazing sight! After the match, we held a swap meet for the shooters. Saturday was "two" 20 shot matches at 1000 yards, followed by a 20 shot team match. This team match was also the second half of the team agg. After the matches, we held a BBQ dinner for all of the shooters. We also gave out over $100,000 in donated prizes and bonus match awards. Sunday was the final day of the match, with "two" more 20 shot matches at 1000 yards.

Pick the Rifle Discipline but a 1000 yards remains that distance. Wind Flags show everything from full value to zero. Thermals are critical to watch and know what each does to your 1 shot (of many).
There's old farts with open Peep Sights doing well at 1000 yards: https://www.flickr.com/photos/105058340@N03/albums/72157664480804880
