Hello, it has been a long time since I cruised this forum, and I am wanting some input on my set up. I currently have a Remington VS in .308 winchester. It is topped with a Leupold VX-II 3-9x50mm, and is sitting in Warne rings and one piece base.
I plan on hunting mule deer in eastern Oregon, and would like to use this rifle. I have owned this rifle for 3 years, and it has as many rounds through the barel. I have thinking about chopping the barrel down to 20 or 22 inches. I also plan on using 165 or 168 grain bullet as the norm for this rifle.
I am asking for some recommendations, information, criticism, etc. Please any info would be greatly appreciated.
I do not plan on extreme range for this rifle. 500yds max
