I have for a long time admired you who can shoot to distances that I never imagined possible unless being a military sniper. I joined this forum to see what I could pick up and am amazed with even seeing that far through a scope. I don't own optics that can even see that far. I was in a hunting club that had a pipeline for about 1000 yards and thought how cool would that be to be able to shoot that distance. Well I found a used Savage Model 111 300 win mag (I think it's 111 fxp3 package) that was being sold because the owner had damaged his spine from a bike wreck. He sold everything from 270 and up . After running a box of ammo I saved enough money to send it off to get a Mag-Na-Brake put on it and is did that make a difference. I'm getting some tax money back and well the scope is ok but I would like to start thinking about maybe a 400 to 600 yard scope in the $300 - $400 range. Please keep in mind that most hunting in Ms. is 50 to 250 yards. I gave my son my Rem 7600 30-06 when I got this one so being a newb and this my gun anyone have an ideal on a scope. What about SWFA 6x42? Thanks in advance.
