I am brand new to long range hunting and have decided that I am going to upgrade my model 12 savage from a .243 into a .260 with a new barrel. But I have hit a road block and need some help about what riflescope I should purchase. The main two problems that I have are that I am 18 years old and a freshman in college (so money is limited) and that I do not know how to shoot scopes with target turrets yet. So here are my questions:
Would I be better off to buy a middle of the road scope with MOA style turrets and take a class to help me learn how to shoot long range? (I'm looking around the $600-800 range for a scope)
...or by a meduim priced scope and then put the kenton TTC turrets on and spend a lot of time down at the range?
My last question for this post: If I spend $800 for a scope and then put Kenton TTC turrets on it...would I be better off to just bite the bullet and buy the huskemaw
for only a little bit more money...or what would be the easiest/best option to start out with?
Any help at all will be greatly appreciated! Thanks
