Blackbeardghost,
Where in Arkansas are you? I am in the Searcy area. Let me know if you want to come out sometime. While I am no expert, I have been at this game a while. Maybe I can help save you a little time or money.

Single dad here, that's ^ exactly how I do it. I built one of em while going back to colledge with 2 young kids in tow. Where there is a will there is a way. Fortunately now I'm starting to get a little breathing room finantialy

A 270 will serve you well over a very very wide array of hunting conditions. Look up my location on Google earth, I don't get close shots very often, yet the 7mag stays home a lot and the 270, 243 get to go.

Keep in mind the animals we shoot for food and display are not bullet proof. Contrary to popular belief, they bleed and die just like they did a hundred years ago. Being competent with a given rifle is far more important than impressive ballistics and poor shootability. High velocity misses never put a steak in the freezer.

I shot 1000 yards for the first time Saturday. 10.3" group with a factory Savage 6.5/284 and handloads (Not mine, the rifle was loaned to me.)

You can get plenty of accuracy from a factor gun and good ammo...
