Re: Striker and the .308 family

Shoot Sagerats, coyotes, Badgers, Cougar, Mule Deer, Elk, Blk. Bear, Steel, Jackrabbits, Pronghorns, paper, At any range that is reasonable at my growing skill level. I will be shooting from benchs to field positions. Prone not so much do to rods in my back I have a hard time raising my head to look tbrew the scope. Sitting with pistol on bipod or resting on my knees is best or over a log or boulder.

    15"
    The range is from a few yards to as far as I can shoot accurately. I live on the high desert of Oregon. 4,350' above sea level. The area is pretty much flat with slight rolling mounds. Sage brush is waist high and can be thick.

    and then after that and then after that and then after that? OH boy, this really could get addictive!

    Is the 6.5-284 a wildcat? I see you favor it for alot of your LR shooting.
    Thanks, Rupe
