Hi everybody. I'm going to buy my first long range shooting rifle soon and was hoping to get some advice on what to get. I plan on using this rifle for target shooting at long range and hunting at medium range, then if my shooting gets good enough, hunting at long range. A Remington 700 VSF .308 caught my eye at a gun store. Do any of you have experience with that rifle? If so, would you recommend it? Please post what rifle you recommend for me. As for a scope, I would like to buy one that is high quality and will last me a long time rather than buy a cheap on that will break soon & I'll have to replace it. I was thinking maybe a Leupold Mark 4 LR/T or VX-III, but I have no idea which scope is good/bad. Which reticle & magnification would you recommend? Any other advice would be appreciated, such as what scope mount to get etc. Thanks in advance.
