Re: long range gear/rifle suggestions
sounds to me like you have a great starting point. Start by working up a load with some of the bullets others on the sight might recomend as I have no experience with the 338's. Bergers and the nosler accubonds tend to get high remarks. My rifles prefer either bergers or the Hornady interbonds with the exception of my .22-250, it loves the good old sierra SPBT. I do know that the latter test worked well for finding a sweet load on all of my rifles and would recommend you do a search on that as well. Quality equipment and QUALITY PRACTICE are very key in this sport. Reading tips and tecnique on this sight helped me a lot and I'm sure will do the same for anyone getting a start. As you shoot more you will find where you feel equipment upgrades are necessary.
Good luck in your adventure.
