Newbie here, name is Robert Ciskowski, I go by "SKI". I used to long distance shoot many years ago, now that all the kids are out oft he house I sold my Browning "A" .338 Rifle, broke open my piggy bank, and saved up all my Fathers Day, Birthday, allowance, and Christmas money and bought a Savage 110 Elite .338 Lapua - 30" barrel. Now I have to save up for the optics and a bunch more stuff. I live in Woodstock Illinois, and hope to join the Gun Club up in Lodi Wisconsin, which has a 1200 yard range.

I am both ex Air Force and Army Special Operations, in my civilian life I was a Conservation Police Officer, Hunter Safety Instructor, blah, blah, and blah. Funny, I do not hunt - just like to plink stuff at a very long distance. I am rusty as heck. If anyone here goes by "SKI" I can go by another name as I have been called and titled a lot of different names. I am interested to hear about Rifle Scopes and Reticles. As that will be my next huge purchase, I am seriously considering the Leupold Mark 8 3.5 - 25 X 56 M5C2 FFP CCH (Not Illuminated). I also want to hear your thoughts on the Barnes Brand .338 Lapua Precision Ammo. Man that was a lot of info.

Thanks in advance.
