Sorry for the ignorance here. I'm an archer by heart and a newbie, but the long range shooting is so much fun, so please forgive my questions. Any help would be great. I recently sold my 300 RUM with the Winchester Action.... yuk. It did shoot great though. It was equipped with a break from Kirby and a Leupold VX7L 4.5-14X50 Boone & Crockett and shooting 200gr Accubonds. Here is where I need the help. I'm stuck with the 300 RUM. I love that caliber. Everyone prefers something different so.... I am getting ready to purchase another 300 RUM in the Sendero SF2 with the H.S stalk, fluted barrel and adjustable trigger. Is the extra cash for this Sendero any better than just a normal REM 300 in stainless? I realize there is a weight difference between the two due to the fluted bull barrel, but that doesn't bother me. I just want a little more accuracy and later down the road, would like Kirby to true the REM action. Only a 20 mile drive. LOL. Just can't afford to have one built all at once. Next question. What scope??? I am very confident out to 500 yards (drop in the hat to most of you), but would like to start shooting some of the Chucks and some paper out to a little further distance. Like to some day work my way to a 1000 yards. (some day) So, with that caliber and the intent to hunt with the rifle as well, what scope do I attach to the rifle? I've been reading thread after thread and just became more confused. S&B, Nightforce, Leupold, Huskemaw, etc... I liked the Leupold VX7, but it had a limit of 600 yards. Also not sure I want to get into the whole MOA... really confuses me. Can't seem to understand it. People make these scopes seem so easy to operate. Just turn the dial and shoot. Ha Ha. I'm lost. So if you could please spend a few min to answer my questions, it would be very much appreciated. Thank you.
