Yep I am your 80 year old, shooting twice a week on the Action Pistol ranges at Sacramento Valley Shooting Center east of Sacramento. My shooting group is now interested in shooting steel at long range.

I have a new bolt action Remington 700 Long Range in 30-06Springfield with a new Magpul chassis. I have two scopes which I am just now installing with quick release.

I plan to shoot them from bench, bipod, short tripod and tall tripod. This will be a target only adventure.

I am looking forward to mastering performances and talking with others similarly equipped.

My newness to this site leaves me unable to say thanks for the Welcome I was given. And I was unable to make a donation. Life does have its bumps.

Welcome. We have done well with that same rifle. Has been a solid performer out beyond 1000y.

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

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
