new rifle, to trade or not to trade
hey guys, i've been shooting for a while but just recently got an interest in longer ranges... i've got about 500 yards to shoot, and like i said, i'm a complete newb.. all i own are hunting rifles, my favorite is a Sako 75 finnlight .280 rem. with a nikon buckmaster 4.5-14 mil dot scope. i'm willing to sacrifice this rifle in order to get into some long range stuff. my buddy offered me this trade:
a remington 700 pss in .308, has has the hs precision stock custom camo painted, a softer pad installed and lead added to butt stock for weight. the rifle has a leupold mark 4 base installed with 8x40 screws(NO SCOPE) badger ordnance m4 bottom metal. Devcon bedded action. Low rd count, (UNDER 250). sling, and fitted pelican hard case.
Straight up for my Sako, scope, and 2 stainless clips.
what should i do? my main concern is i've got about $1400 into the sako, and i really don't want to lose money
