I would recommend the target turrets. IOR makes a 6-18x with the MPR8 reticle that works very well. Talk to vernon and ask him. He will not steer you wrong.

Re: price range for long range rifle

You may want to call a good smith and have one built for you, like Shawn Carlock from Defensive Edge or George Garner from GAP. The Marines use the McMillan A4 stock right now, with custom Remington action and barrel, built up in house by Marines. So you may want to look into ordering a Mac A4 and have a Remington action built up into a rifle for you.

Check out snipershide.com for more info.

Re: price range for long range rifle

Here is an example of a good used gun at a reaonable price.

Also would not get hung up on $3000 gun and no money left for skill training and other equip. that does not pass the common sense test. Particularily when there are studies to go away from the bolt gun to semis underway in both the Army and USMC. You are a good 2-3 yrs out from going to the sniper school and lot of changes are happening fast.
