I am new to longrange hunting and would like info on a good caliber and scope. I hunt deer and elk in southeastern British Columbia. Thanks for any advice.

Welcome to the sport,I really like the 300 RUM case for building long range rifles.They
are easy to find and the quality is on the up swing.Buy the best scope you can afford..
I have Leupolds and Weaver that work fairly well.Owning a range finder and ballistics program is probably as important as caliber and rifle-scope combo.

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
