Re: Buying a Gunwerks LR-1000 a good choice?
That's a lot of dough. I think a lot of it depends on what you hope to learn from the sport. Like what was previously mentioned, it's an out of the box package set up to use a certain type of ammo. It's marketed as range, dial, and shoot. But there are so many more variables involved that may be missed with just buying a set up like this.
For less money than that, I have been able to set up three long range rifles. A Rem 700 5R Milspec in 308, a Rem 700 in 300 WM (Currently being blueprinted w/ new bbl), and a Rem 700 Sendero in 300 RUM. All of these are tack drivers and capable of 1000 + yds day in and day out.
It's your money, and I'm sure this is a nice rifle, but consider buying a Rem, Savage, or one of the other recommended rifles and putting some time into learning this sport inside and out. This will gice you the opportunity to learn theory, not just range, dial, and shoot.
