I shoot and kill about everything with a 308. Nothing to scoff at. I have big bore rifles but I prefer the 308 with 168 Bergers, handloaded and jumped of course. Something about a 7 pound scoped and loaded stick I like.This pretty much sums it up. Spend more time shooting and less time worrying about your gear.
A $600 rifle chambered for 308 Win and a $300 scope is a great way to get started while giving you lots of options for inexpensive ammo. The 6.5 Creedmoor would be a good second choice for the same reasons.
Don't expect to master it quickly, once you get beyond 600yds life gets complicated. Beyond 1,000 it gets very complicated.New shooter and I read all the threads. A lot of valuable knowledge here built from lots of experience and money spent on gear. For a new shooter such as myself, what is the #1 tip to assist in the journey to long range shooting? Thanks in advance.
That load and bullet combo is working for you. Whatever it is write it down, order in bulk.
Thank you sir for the information and sharing your experience. That rifle is zeroed that is POI I get when I have the magnetospeed bayo installed.That load and bullet combo is working for you. Whatever it is write it down, order in bulk.
Move that lovely group up 1 MOA, left .5MOA.
Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen
The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
