Hello, I just joined a couple of days ago. While I've been shooting a long time, I'm just now getting started in long distance shooting. I don't hunt, so it will be just targets. I just ordered a Remington 700 SPS Stainless in .308. I plan on putting a Bushnell Elite 6500 4.5-30x50 scope on it. I have the 2.5-16x50 on my M1A SOCOM 16 and really love that scope. But for the Remington, I plan to extend my range to 1000 yards. That may take a while, but I'll be having fun while learning the tricks. Speaking of tricks, that's why I joined this forum... hoping to learn the tricks of the trade for long distance shooting.
