Long Range Newbie Help Please
Hey guys! I just joined this forum and am also just attemping to get into long range shooting. For me long range=500-600 Yards. My plan is to sell my Ruger 22-250 varmit setup with a leupold vx-iii 6.5-20. The only reason I bought it was because I felt it was very mispriced at $650, very lightly used. Of course I had to take it coyote hunting and ding the laminated stalk up some.....
Anyway with the money from that and some extra I would like to get set up into a good setup with a little more pop, and less drift. Total I would like to stay under $1300, if possible. I was thinking of a 308 but after much research I am more confused than I could have imagined. I find the 7mm-08, 284, and 280ai all very interesting. I do have a friend who reloads heavily who will help me with that end of it. Basically a good action barrel set-up i can grow and refine my skills with at my budget. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
