Re: New to Long Range Shooting
That 270WSM will be a hammer. That is the route I would go. Look at Night Force, Sightron SIII, Vortex Viper PST, Weaver Tactical, SWFA SS 5-20HD. They are all good options unless you have the bucks for Premiere, Schmidt & Bender, or US Optics. Ammunition you want to look for 140+ grain in a boat tail design of some type.
