Okay so I am semi-new to the world of long range marksmanship. I was at the local outdoor store today looking at prices at a long range setup. I want to use said setup for long range target shooting (1000+ yards) as well as hunting. As nice as the guy was I do not know if he was feeding me a line or not.
He turned me on to a website called gunwerks. He said nothing but good things about this place.
This is the rifle he said should be my number one, two and three choice.
Gunwerks - LR-1000 Shooting System
Now the gun setup he told me to get was the 7mm mag set up. With the custom load development. And a Nightforce scope.
I understand the in order to get an amazing long distance rifle and scope you have to pay the big bucks.
And to be honest I do not even know if this is the right site to talk about this at but it seems like it with a name like longrangehunting.com.
But anyways. (sorry to ramble)
For a price of 7k+ I thought I could find an equally good setup for less cost. Am i wrong... probably...
Now I was in the market for a sharpshooting setup about 5 months ago. I found rave reviews on the new Savage .308 police setup. Without the break in the barrel.
Now i have never been to good with scopes so I was going to get a nightforce optics.
8-32x56 & 12-42x56
I guess i completely got off track.
I was just wondering what you guys thought of said gunwerks. And what setup you would say. I know everyone is different. I just want the most bang for my buck. (pun intended)
Thank you very much.
