Re: trying to get into long range shooting with something that wont break the bank
This thread is getting very interesting,
I have been thinking of a 700 long action, with SS barrel, and gradually upgrading it, still thinking of the .308, also considering the larger ones. Nothing is written in stone, else I wouldnt be here. I have read a lot of good things about the .338, the only three rounds I have good experience with are the .270, the .308 and the 30-06 .
I am leaving MI this week for NE Wa so even on gun smiths I am wide open.
Which Savage model for a combo Elk and LR target rifle to start with ? What options are available for the Savage?
I do like shooting with a bipod, weight up to even 12 lbs isnt a problem. I hunt with Packgoats and am used to hauling in a pretty good camp so gun accesories arnt a problem. Next year I will have a five goat string. Fwiw.
