my 338 lapua savage lrh 111

Got my long range hunter model 111 today. I love the looks of this fun feels real sturdy guess that's because the accustock. Probably going to use a redfield revolution 4-12x44 I love that scope had one before never got use before I sold it on a rifle but very clear and holds up to recoil not a target scope but this is a hunting rifle hence the name.

Going to get a proper bipod just used this one to hold it up. Also I went with the lapua over the rums and wby because barrel life and since its got it's foot in the door with several militaries I feel its place among rifle calibers is secure. Not sure about the others.

When you get your tax return, you may want to look for a little better scope. The Redfields are nice, but you are going to really limit the Lapua's distance with that scope. If you want to price savings, look at Vortex, Bushnell Elite 3200 series, Millet LRS, Phantom Menace, Nikon Buckmaster, and other various scopes in the same price range. Will offer you the ability to dial up, and a little more power.

Alright will so. I wanted a Leupold competition 45x45 with german #1 reti$cle. But I can't spend 1000

I heard it has the recoil of a 308 with the brake so hope it wont be to rough on optics
