As the title says there are many options out there and I'm honestly new to long range shooting. Right now I live in WV and in moderatly hilly and wooded terrain so I use a 30-06 with a fixed scope of 4x30 if I recall. Not exactly long range shooting, but for deer hunting it does the job quite well given most kills occure ator under 75M or so. Now I'm looking to buy something that can hit out to 600M and I am in need of some advice. I'm not trying to build a super expensive rifle since I'm just starting out, and right now 300M is about as far as I can find local range wise, but want that ability to do 600M I've narrowed it down to either a Remington 700 or a Savage 10FP. I know I'd like to use a .308 round, and I've been told I should pick up a 6x24x50 scope or something close. In the Remington I know they make multiple variants of that series and I'm leaning towards the SVT with the triangular barrel and muzzle break. Comments on the matter? I know the scope is going to be fairly expensive as well, I'd like to keep things economical if possable because like I said this is something new to me. I'm not looking to hit a silver dollar at 600M, but if I could consistantly hit a cantolop or even a small watermelon I'd be satisfied. Theres so much info out there I feel overwelmed as you may imagine, and I don't want to put my faith in some guy behind the counter trying to sell me a rifle alone.
