Re: building first SP! help please
I had a carpenter tell me once " The only way to spell 'COOL' is with dollar bills". This applies to guns. Patience will get you a base xp for $650 delivered from Gunbroker. There are several 7BRs in UTAH for $700. They punch out to 7-08 or 284Win easily. Rebarrel to 6.5x284 easily to. WSM and SAUM cartriges add $$$ for the bolt conversion. 400 yards is easily attainable with conventional optics and cartriges. Brakes, high dollar scopes, big cartrige conversions enable the range to be streched, with the next $2000 gone quickly. This is based on my own experience. I hunt with a JDJ that will reliably hit and dispatch game to 400. Accuracy is 1/2 min. and remains stable at much longer range, but terminal velocity will not expand bullets beyond 500. I currently have a 6.5x284 xp 100 in the works to strech some things out distance wise. Serious Investment. As they say,costs less than a snowmobile or a boat, to keep it in perspective.
