I understand the value and superior performance of modern wildcats and ultra expensive "platforms" (used to be called a rifle). I would be very interested in learning about any of you who do long range shooting and hunting with more common FACTORY calibers such as 30.06 Springfield and a regular off the shelf rifle like a Remington 700. Basically something a normal blue collar guy like me could buy. As far as glass is concerned, ..Heck some of the scopes I read about cost more than my 2001 Toyota. So for arguments sake, lets say a Leopold or Bushnell or Nikon for glass. Any in put in any of these areas would be greatly appreciated.
