Alright, I am new to this long range shooting thing but I want to get involved. First off I shoot a 30-06 and I would like to use it for at least one more year for deer/elk before upgrading.
I am going to get a Leica finder, Leupold Gold Ring spotter and am going to be putting on a new scope...Here's where I am lost, I would like to be able to dial in the range on my scope...But how does this work?
Say I have a 30-06 and my buddy has a 7mm Ultra MAg we both buy Leupold Mark 4 tactical scopes with target knows/adj whatever there tech. term is...
Now the scope is going to move the same amount for each adjustment even though we are shooting different claibers...can someone line me out on getting the the right scope and how I dial it in??
Thanks Lost in the long range world

if your '06 is a shooter no real need to change that-glass is extremely important-leupold is a great choice for a reasonable amount of money-consistency is the key to long range shooting so your ammo will need to be selected carefully and then either load alot of it or buy loaded stuff preferably in the same lot #'s-check here for the dials for your scope that can be made to match your load.
