    I have a Remington 700 ADL in 22 250. I have been looking at stocks and chassis systems, optics, optic mounting. There are so many options to choose from for everything. What would you guys use for stock/ chassis, optics and so forth? I like the McRee chassis but I'm unsure if that will work due to needing a AI or McRee magazine... and I don't want to completely break the bank. So I'd like to keep the optic under 1k and the stock in the same range. Also, what else would you guys add to this rifle. Just looking for any ideas. Thanks

    I've been mulling over what optics to get for my new 243. posted on here with my mind geared towards a 500 or less optic, and it basically seemed to be a lot of people just playing favorites, but the thing that made the most sense to me was, what type of shooting to plan to do, and at what ranges. after scouring the internet looking at hawke, vortex, bushnell, sightron, and others, I went to my local gun stores, and bass pro to play around with some demo scopes, looking for scopes that had the features I wanted such as side focus, mil-dot or moa reticle and so on, as that's what I want for what I plan to do (long range woodchucks). Vortex really seems to stand out to me as the best for the price. I myself am eyeing the viper HS-T 6-24x50. the price on it is around 600-650 depending on shipping, promos, and so forth.

    A guy I shoot with sometimes builds rifles. He always has high end scopes with him when we hit the range. I will look through them, so I can compare the optics. For the money, it's hard to beat the Sightron S3.
