This is my first post on the forum but I'm not entirely new to long range shooting having done some varmiting w/ a Browning A-bolt Varmint in 22-250 w/ a B&L 4000 6x24 and a Sendero in 25-06 w/ a Leupold Vari-x III 4.5x14 Tactical.
However, I'm now setting up a long range deer & hog gun w/ a Savage 12BVSS in .300 WSM
. My question is how much magnification do I need to shoot deer at 500 yards and tactical matches out to 700 yards (the max distance at my local range)?
Also, would you suggest a ballistic plex sort of retical or target knobs?
