I am afraid to see where this goes now. Have a habit of over doing things. It's only money right?

Re: new to long range

Oh, I can tell you're in big trouble already with an attitude like that. You'd better lock up your billfold and checkbook while you still have a chance.

Nah, that wouldn't be any fun cause half the fun is planning and spending the bucks to get what you want.

Re: new to long range

Will trade wife for guns and ammo, need 7mm parts. Maybe a long range varmint gun. One way of paying for them right??? That was a joke!! Been a reader for awhile, now a poster. I am a learner and doer, (when funds allow).

Thoughts on up coming builds or buys.
losing my mini 14 for a 600 yrd .223 tack driver
7mm is the choice over the .308, since i have dies and cases, along with the performance.

Re: new to long range

Hey welcome to the site. A fast twist .223 is good fun and a great practice gun!

And I agree, 7mm is a great caliber, if you have a .223 to practice with. I have a 308 win and use it for practice. If you only want one gun for now, 308 win is a great do-it-all caliber. And will get you more accustomed to some recoil than a .223. Piece of advice, don't skimp on optics!
