First off, this is a great website. I am just getting started in the long range game. For now, to me long range is going to be anything between 200 and 600 yards. If I can work my way out to there it will be a nice milestone. I am in central Texas and so I mostly hunt whitetail and hogs. I have been looking into getting new rifle but I have a 6 month old boy so I will work with what I have for now. About 12 years ago my dad gave me a Sako 75 in 270. Last year I had it accurized at hill country rifle and they got it shooting about ¾ MOA with factory ammo. I’ve got a Vortex Viper 4-16x44 on order to replace the Nikon buckmaster that is on it now. So now for my questions: I am going to start reloading with a friend who is set up. The rifle currently shoots the hornady 130 grain very well but I was wandering what options there are for different types of bullets that yall have had success with. I am looking for a higher BC. Also, what kind of rings do I need to use to mount the scope? The buckmaster is a 40 mm and has very little clearance. I know I will need taller rings but do I need to go with any type of rail so pick the front of the scope up? I think the rings on there now are leupold.
