Well, I've been a bow hunter for years and have hunted with nothing but a bow. What can I say? I love archery. My fiance wants me to get a rifle since I got invited on a rifle hunt. The only thing that sparks my interest about rifle hunting is long range. I've been looking at a few different rifles and I think I'm gonna go with the Remington Model 700 VLS in a .308 WIN w/ a 26" heavy contoured barrel and a 12" twist. Anybody got any takes on this one? I'm here looking for advice and tips and by the way I'm not a millionaire so keep that in mind. LOL! I look forward to what I can learn from all of the experienced guys around the forum and all of the articles available.
