Hey guys, I am just starting to look into getting a LR gun to take to the range and have some fun. I am kind of doing this on a budget and after reading the "long range on a budget" article on here I have a pretty good idea what I am after. Not sure how far out I want/can reach with this setup? Like I said I am all new to LR stuff.
Start out with a Stevens 200 in .308 Winchester
Per the article - SSS Competition Trigger
Looking at the Choate Ultimate Sniper Stock
SSS High Capacity Detachable Mag
Now like I said I am just starting out, but I don't want to skimp on optics and want to upgrade in 6 months. So I was looking at the Bushnell 4200 6-24x50 Mil-Dot. I have read that a 20MOA base is not enough if you want to reach out to 1000yds. So what rings and base should I be looking for?
Also as far as muzzle brakes
go...Do I need to change barrel's from the beginning, can I stick with the stock one for now? What brake do you guys suggest?
How about bipod as well?
This will most likely just be a range rifle. Not going out hunting with it, just want something worthwhile to go long distance for a hobby gun.
Thanks Alot, and sorry if the questions seem dumb! I am looking at learning as well as possibly doing the assembly myself if I can. If I can't then I will def. have a professional do it.
