    Just starting out and eventually would like to try my hand in a F-Class F-T/R competition.

    I picked up a Remington SPS 700 Varmint, .223 Heavy Barrel adjustable trigger. Added a Nikon Prostaff 3x9-50mm BDC scope and 6"-9" Bipod.

    What else do need to get started? I realize for longer ranges I need a better scope and possibly a better stock.

    rear bag would be a good idea, and handloading your own ammo

    Have a good bedding job done and make sure the bbl is free floated.
