Re: Which topics would you like to see Feature Articles written about?
With the economy in the state that it is, I would like to see more articles on budget minded long range equipment. Take my set-up for example. 2 years ago, I started my long range project with a Rem. 700sps stainless varmint in
.308 win. As finances came available, I upgraded it with a Tubb firing pin set,
a Rifle Basix trigger, and a used HS Prec. stock. On top is a Hawke 6-24 SF in a DNZ mount. I tried reloading for this rifle and quickly found that Federal G.M. 168gr BTHP's ($25 or less a box) are extremely hard to beat. Out to 800yds, this is truely a half-minute set-up with 400yd groups @ 1.5". The point I'm trying to make is that you don't have to spend $3,000-$5,000 to hit what you are aiming at.
