Hi all. I found this site last night as I'm doing my research for "building" myself a long range gun. Long range meaning capable of taking elk/deer at 600 yrds. So my search has begun. What I'm looking for now is a gun to start with. What do most of you consider to be a good gun to start with? Remington, Savage, SAKO, Browning, Winchester??? I have about 1,000 to get started (barrel and action) I want to do the extras (bedding, floating, lapping, triger etc) myself. I do hand load and have been doing that for 20 years. So, what say you? I did a search but really din't find what I was looking for. I'm sure this question gets asked a lot and my appologies if I over looked it.
