    Welcome to LRH Bobcat Sniper!

    There are only about a thousand threads on this topice. Here's one that has just run it's course. Use the search thing and you can read on this for weeks.

    I envy you having a 1300 yd range you can step outside to, That would be real sweet.

    Good shooting and keep us posted on your progress.

    I'm building a similar rig. 700 action 30" barrel of some kind. Scopes the sky is the limit or I guess your wallet. I am trying out my first Bushnell 3200 10x40 and so far really like it. Plus only 160-180 on ebay. Let me know how some loads go for ya.

    If it is for hunting and targets I would go with the NF NSX 5.5-22 or one of the March scopes in 2.5 - 25 or 5-50x.

    If it is strictly for targets just bump the power on the above offerings.

    Just my .02.

    If paper's mostly what your going to shoot I would suggest the NF BR 8-32x @ $1211 or NF BR 12-42x @ $1359 versus for example NF NXS 5.5-22x @ $1632 to $1810 depending on feartures or NF NSX 12-42x @ $1885. Heads up, mirage can be an issue with 32x and 42x.
