Help with First long range scope
I am in the market for my first long range scope. HELP!
I have been hunting with my Remi 700 SPS, and with handloads 1/2 MOA is easy.
I recently purchased the stoney point turret knobs and put them on my Leupold Rifleman 3-9x40.
After an hour of testing I was making first round hits on rocks out to 530 yds.
I was hooked.
I've been on this site several times and purchased some books as Im working up to long range hunting.
I have killed beer out to 400yds with my setup using kentucky windage. But I recognize the need for good data and optics out past that distance.
I hunt in CA and MT and have had the opportunity for animals past my comfort distance but not the optics and knowledge to make the shot.
I like Nightforce, but not the price. I see the scopes on here in the gear shop and wonder who uses these and what do you think.
Any knowledge would be appreciated as I am a newbie.
Thanks in advance.
