This site has been great for a someone like me who is learning about long range hunting. I got spurred by my 14 y/o son who really wants to try gopher hunting. He has a 243 Remington 700 SPS with a Nikon Buckmasters 4.5-14x40 scope. I am looking at a 223 Savage model 12FV to combine with a Leupold VX III 6.5-20x40 EFR scope I was given. Does this seem a reasonable start? I know a range finder and spotting scope are also in the works. Thanks for any advice.
