I agree, this is a great article that answered alot of my questions. I'm a newbee to this so I need all the help I can get. I'm almost there ,planning to get a Savage 30:06 with a Bushnell 3200 elite scope. Hope that works for me to at least start.

That will be a great starting point. In case you couldn't tell from my article, I love a Savage rifle. The 30-06 is a great caliber and loaded properly can get you out approximately 1200 yards for target maybe a bit farther. It is a solid 800-900 yard caliber for deer. Elk you will have to bring it in to about 500 or 600 yards. Using a good 180 to 190 grain class match bullet will get you there. I think you will be very happy with the 5-15x40 Bushnell 3200 Elite Tactical. They actually use this same scope on 50BMG's. That says volumes for its ability to stay together for proper operation.

Blessings and Good shooting,
Jeromy

Depending on the budget, I like the Burris Signature Z Rings, or the Burris XTR. There are much more expensive rings out there, but these are the rings I have used and like.

Blessings,

Jeromy
