Hey Guys, I'm going to be building my first rifle for hunting at extended ranges. I've been looking at this site for over a year envious at the shooting you all do not thinking it would be possible to shoot 400+ without insane amounts of practice for years on end. I recently got to shoot a rifle that was properly setup for shooting at those distances (reset-able turrets and Ballistic Charts). I was able to make 2 of 2 shots on a 9" at 750 yards Mountain to Mountain while doping wind, this was my first time ever shooting past 300. I am now hooked knowing that I could shoot ethically and effectively on game out to 600 yards with 2-3 days of practice a month. What I want out of this gun is to be able to take a deer out to 600 and an elk out to 400 with minimal recoil. While having the bare rifle (No scope, rings, sling or ammo) come in between 7 and 7 1/2 LBS. I am thinking 280AI with a 160 AB doing about 2850 fps (H4831SC). It is going to be a cheaper build as its my first. This is what I have come up with so far: Stevens LA Shilen Pre-Fit 26" 1:9 twist Undecided Contour Rifle Basix trigger B&C Medalist SSS Lug DNZ Gamereaper 30mm Medium I already have purchased a Viper HS 4-16x44 What are your opinions on what I've chosen and what are your recommendations? Keep in mind I am a Canadian so everything is WAY harder to get and costs A LOT more. The total cost for me including scope (No dies or components) will be $2K + THANKS!
