Hi guys, I'm new to this forum and long range shooting. I'm wanting to do my first long range build soon but I and thinking about putting a little twist on the typical long range rifle. I live in Tennessee and there isn't much opportunity to shoot past about 700 yards. I am looking at a Remington 700 sps in 270 win because of light recoil sence I will mostly be self spotting my shots , sense this rifle will be primarily used for whitetail deer. The twist I mentioned is that I want a light weight rifle because I do a lot a walking when I hunt because the property doesn't have a lot of road access. So I was wondering what you all think about my caliber choice and about if i was to go with a standard 24" or maybe 26" barrel instead of a big heavy bull barrel. Also I'm only 19 so I can't afford a $1,000 scope for this rifle so what is a good scope for shooting about 700 yards that won't break the bank?
