Hi guys, I've been lurking here for a few years and love this forum. I've now moved to a location where I can practice at longer ranges so I thought I might go from lurker to active.
EDIT: I posted this kinda late and rambled a bit. Let me do away with that wall of text.
Savage Long Range Hunter in .308
Super Sniper 5-20
Harris Bipod 9-13"
Cheaper than dirt sells the gun for about $780 and I don't think I can build one that would be any better without spending a few hundred more (minimum). Plus I think I'd rather have the nicer scope than a semi-custom gun.
I plan on shooting 180 grain Nosler Ballistic tips, 200 grain Game Kings, and 208 grain Amax bullets through it along with a pile of cheap ball for practice.
So any comments? Am I missing something here? The only downside I'm seeing is the LRH is still really a 24" barrel since Savage is measuring the brake. A 26" would be kinda cool
and what I'd use if I built one.
The big plus I see here is the ability to make it into a single shot .338 Edge with just a barrel, bolt face, and about 20-30 minutes. I don't want to spend the money shooting the Edge to learn on even though it's the cartridge I really want to hunt with in the long term.
