Thought I'd say hey. I'm from east tennessee. I've not gotten into long range shooting yet, but i've been doing a lot of shooting and loading for the last 40 years. I've been reading a lot in the background and asking some questions for a 2010 Wyoming antelope hunt. I'm just starting working on a Remingtion 700 in 7mm remington mag. It's a plain jane with synthetic stock. I've put a 3.4 X 10 Loupold vxlll on it with redfield mounts and weaver one piece base. My wife who will be with me on the Wyoming hunt for antelope shoots a Remington 700 ADL in 270 Winchester with a 2.5 x 8 Leupold vxlll. Right now i'm looking at stocks to replace my factory synthetic on the 7mm. Great forrum and i've enjoyed all the advice.
