Re: Long range build on tight budget???
4-16x44 vortex viper, is all you need with that rifle, I wouldn't even bother with a barrel till it quits shooting. 3-500yrds is right in the 270's sweet spot
Keep in mind the animals we shoot for food and display are not bullet proof. Contrary to popular belief, they bleed and die just like they did a hundred years ago. Being competent with a given rifle is far more important than impressive ballistics and poor shootability. High velocity misses never put a steak in the freezer.
