My first LR guns on it\'s way!
I am throughly thrilled to be entering this new form of shooting that I've only scratched the surface of so far.
I am experenced out to 400 or 500 yards but hope to go to a 1000 and maybe beyond in the future. The gun is a Savage 112BVSS in 7mm rem mag cal. I plan on changing the stock and adding a bipod. I don't know what bases to get. I am going to top it with a Leupold VX-II 6-18X40 with target turrets. From what I understand the scope doesn't have enough "up" adjustment for getting to 1000 yards, so do I need a canted base?
And lastly does the 7mm mag have enough power to to take deer at distances over 1000 yards?
NOTE: The deer in my neck of the woods don't get any larger than 150 pounds.
I shoot 1/4 inch groups at a 1000 yards. That is...till my second shot.
