Re: Need some advice on a new rifle

Some absolutely great advice here. I also like any of the .30's for really reaching out there and most importantly, making a humane kill.
I encourage you to also check out Nikon's Spot On website. It's free and has more ballistic info then you can handle,maybe. You can even enter atmospheric conditions for where you are at. Go to Nikonhunting.com, click on Spot On logo, register and have at it. It also has G7 drag table's for handloader's as well. Lot's of guy's want a 1000 yard rifle,heck I want one, but the furthest I have ever shot is 623 yards. That extra 377 yards is a whole different ballgame. You've come to the right place for pertinent information that I can assure you.
Take a look and let me know hat you think?

My name is Bart, I am a longtime hunter and I am here to answer any questions on Nikon hunting optics you may have. I will also be sharing new products and specials on occasion.
