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!
"Out of range" is a theoretical concept as far as I'm concerned. Send it!
