Hey everyone, I am new to the forum. I have read a lot from this forum and others in the past day concerning a new long range hunting rifle setup. I need help and advice so I figured I would just ask. Here is my situation. I currently own a Howa Axiom .308 used for deer hunting. Most of my shots are between 100-250yds. The .308 is perfect for this. However, I am looking for something that can do work at 400-900yds. All of the research I have done shows that a .308 is not as accurate past 400yds (more bullet drop than .300win) and drastically loses the "knockdown" power to ethically kill an animal. Therefore, I am uncomfortable at taking a shot past 300yds. I want something that I can feel comfortable going past that distance. Target animal is whitetail but I want something that can take down an elk at long range too in the event I ever get the chance to go elk hunting. So far it looks like the .300win is what I am going to go for but what platform? I have $2000 that I can drop now but I need everything. Rifle, scope, etc. So what are my options? I am eyeing the TC Dimension because of the price (more money for the scope) but realistically, can I find a setup at or under $2000? Also, I have no clue about reloading so I will be shooting factory ammo. Any help or advice would be great, thanks.
