which is the forum where the LR target/Fclass shooters are.
Fclass is the easiest and simplest way to get in LR and to learn the wind.
You will want to shoot in the F/TR (Target rifle) class which is 308 or 223 only versus the Open class with the big guns. I would go to Savage Shooters
and look for the ads from Northlander and look at the savage F/TR rifle in 308 that he is selling for $925. that is a good to go, capable of winning gun and in 308 which is easy to reload and long barrel life. 30inch barrel that is a winner.
Buy a Ken Farrel 20 MOA base ($67) and TSR rings ($70) from Brownells Brownells - World's Largest Supplier of Firearm Accessories, Gun Parts and Gunsmithing Tools
Nikon 6-24 or 6-18 with 1/8 clicks, SWFA super sniper in either 16 or 20x for $300 new. You will need at least 60 MOA of elevation in the scope, whatever it is.
for F/TR, you will need a bipod (swivel 9-13") and $60 shooting mat, $30 read bag and that is it to start.
With the savage F/TR you can shoot the 155 bullets or the 175s at 1000. Savage also sells the Fclass rifle which is a 6.5-284 for the Open class, same $925.
the good deal with the savages, they are ready to go out of the box, and you can buy prechambered barrels to change to another caliber and install yourself for around $300. $100 buys a new bolt in a magnum caliber and now you have LR hunting gun.
