    I'm new to long range shooting. What can I do to a ruger mkII m77 .270 to make it a decent long range shooter on a limited budget?

    Howdy. One thing I did to shoot further was get a scope that could see further. I switched all my scopes from the traditional 3 by 9 power to 6 by 24 power with turrets where I could dial up as needed for the shot.

    Thanks. I've been looking at a 4 x 16 x 56 mildot made by UTG. Any thoughts on the brand? Also, are there any mechanical mods I could make aside from free floating the barrel, which I have already done? I have their ultra light composite stock. Thanks
