    Your right about choosing budget first. That is why I think it is important to choose the scope first and put a rifle under it. That will be my plan next time some thing built around a 300 gr .338 Berger.

    I love it. It is the first real nice gun I own. The bullet was 140 seirra match kings with CCI large rifle primers and 52 grains of H4831sc in Nosler custom brass. I shot a 3 shot group at 187 yards that measured .82 inches with it. I haven't tried to repeat those results yet so it might have been a fluke. I just got some Bergers in the mail yesterday and plan to work up a load with them. And the gun wears a weaver tactical 4-20 power scope.
