New To Forum - Need Long Range Rifle Advice
Hello everyone, I am Dave from Texas and am new to this forum. I have been shooting, hunting and reloading for about 30 years, but have recently decided to dip my foot into the long range hunting/shooting pool.
I would like to build a decent long range rifle, primarily for targets but also the occasional long range hunt. By long range I mean 600-1000 yards. I am fortunate to have a new range that goes out to 1000 yards within 30 minutes of my home.
As most folks nowadays I am on a pretty tight budget so am hoping to build the rifle on a less expensive platform. I am thinking Savage at this time due to the great things I have heard about it, but not sure. Also thinking about the .300WSM, but again, not sure.
I would love to get your recommendations on action mfg./model, barrel, optics, etc., as well as calibers. Even wildcats are a consideration because I handload.
Thanks in advance for your help. I look forward to learning alot from you guys.
