Re: For all you people thinking of getting started but are intimidated by the dollars

My rifle was $450 when I bought it new, I have incrementally made it into a "custom" gun, last things to change are bolt knob, barrel and recoil lug. It's a good gun that I wat to work up to 600 yards for hunting and 1k for competition, when I get good enough, which could be a while. Found out it's really easy to go the build it piece by piece route and not feel too pinched.

Re: For all you people thinking of getting started but are intimidated by the dollars

Was looking around on the computer one day and found web site that offered entry level sniper/long range rifles in Rem and Howe actions starting price around $1000 -1200. offer several Cal up to 300u but no .338LM. snipercentral i believe. I was going to go that route then decided i would go to Pawn shop. found a Stevens 200 in .300wm with nikon 6x18x40sf mil-dot that i don't think weighed 6lbs with scope, wasn't quick enough to go get it next day. but did find a savage 12 in 22-250 varmint with nikon 6x18x40sf fine cross hair with dot (not crazy about scope but works for now.) Got the package for $740 out the door. After a year got a chance to play a little, after quick site in had my twin 10 yr old daughters picking off bowling pins at 140-150 yrds. oldest didn't get a chance to shoot. They have only shot .22Lr. wasn't sure how they would deal with it, they loved it so i got my first medium range rifle and the kids can enjoy it as well will upgrade as time goes on. Also have Win model 70 30-06 that mcgowen barrels can redo for about 580 out the door plus a savage model 10 in .308 i could redo. the options are endless. figured 22-250 good start then possibly 6br. There are some smoking deals in the classifieds I find myself looking there all the time There is a sweet .338edge with red b&C stock on it for 2500. As usual day late and dollars short.
