I am new to this forum, so I would like to say hello to everyone here. I am 63 yrs young and retired construction superintendent of 45 yrs in the trade. I have taken up archery and shooting after a 30 yr. layoff due to family,job and such. shooting of any kind has been about the discipline of body, mind and equipment and to put one arrow or bullit in the same hole everytime, not that I can do that but that is what I strive for. Anyway just alittle about me. My question is I want to shoot long range and I have a Mauser 3000L in 7mm rem mag, it has a 26" barrel, adjustable trigger to 2 lbs and was built in 1975. The rifle is in excellent condition thru out, rifling, bluing, stock etc. Will this do what I want it to do?And get me started in the right direction for LR target shooting only. In time with more knowledge and talking with other shooters at the range I would like to build one at some point,and also reload but until I gain this know how in long range shooting, I would like to use the Mauser 3000L 7mm rem mag. I bought this rifle mainly because of its beauty, also It is a left hand in which I am and I thought the 7mm rem mag was a middle of the ground cartridge, as I also have a bushmaster in 223. that I enjoy. Looking forward to the wisdom on the site to get me on the right trackand start having some fun, thanking everyone in advance.
