Re: First Long range rifle and first attempt at it
Welcome to the addiction. Before you go wasting ammo at 400yds, take some time to get to know the rifle. Buy a couple different brands of ammo unless you are reloading. Make sure you get a good zero. You want to try and figure out your estimated velocity and pull up a drop chart using JBM Calculations. Do a good barrel break in while your shooting. This will add longevity and accuracy to your rifle. I'm interested in hearing how that rifle shoots. I want one of the new .223's with the AR mag. Let us know how it goes.
