Hey guys I'm new to this whole forum thing and I've shot semi pro nfaa archery tourney's for the last 6 years so excuse my ignorance in advance.
I'm looking to build/buy a decent .308 caliber mid range (650-800 yards) gun. It is gonna be primarily a paper gun, but I might shoot a few deer and varmints with it.
Unfortunately money is a object, so I would like to keep it as close to the $1000 mark as possible (with optics). Seeings I manage a sporting goods store I get things at cost.
I know its a far cry to having a good shooter but I just wanna start out small to see if I like it.
I've looked at all of the 700 tactical stuff, and just recently seen the Howa Axiom. I've heard good things about savage, but I would like some opinions on what ya'll like as for as action/stock combo's or just out ready to buy guns.
I would also like opinions on optics for around $250-$350.
Heresay is appriciated but experiece would be nice.
THANKS TO ALL IN ADVANCE!!!
