Re: Total long range beginner
Do what I did and I think you'll be pleased. I bought a Savage rifle from Bill Bailey. Put a tactical bolt knob, a SSS trigger, Farrel base, Burris Extreme tactical rings, a Super Sniper scope, a Choate Sniper stock for tactical shooting and a Sharpshooter Centerfire stock for LR coyote and p-dog hunting, and a Douglas barrel on it. Total price: $1480 (including BOTH stocks). Does it shoot? 1/4 to a third MOA on paper out to 500 and recently matched shot for shot with several $3000 plus rigs at Badlands out to 1K. Very versatile, very inexpensive and built just the way I want it. I'm telling ya, you won't regret it.
By the way, I started doing this at 40 and I happen to think that I'm not too bad at it [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
