Re: new member, gun question

on of my main reasons for going with the 223 is that my dad has a ton of bass for the 223 already. i plan on reloading most of the time and so i already have everything i need for starting out, besides bullets and powder. I'm also going to college so i'm trying to keep the cost down as much as possible.

i'm not trying to be hard headed. i'm really enjoying all the information you guys are throwing out about this.

Thanks.

Re: new member, gun question

Don't worry about anyone thinking your hardheaded...I don't see it that way. Sounds like you have alot of the reloading cost already covered and if your choice is the 223...then great.

If you hang around here long enough you'll get to see folks who would as the saying goes fight to the death defending a beloved caliber or gun or scope or pet load and so on. We're all that way...at least I am at times and that's good because during those debates alot of valuable info is shared and learned...but at the end of the day what's most important to me is that I've maintained a comradery with these gentlemen.

Re: new member, gun question

thanks for the great advice.

also any ideas on a great scope? i would like to keep the cost fairly low but having a very clear scope is first to everything else.

The Nikon Buckmaster 4.5-14 is a good choice as are the Nikon Monarch Series. You may also want to take a look at the Bushnell Elite 3200 and 4200 tactical's. I prefer fine reticle.
