My wife surprised me on my birthday with the gun that I have always wanted. I have a lot of hunting experience but to be honest have never shot anything over 150 yards. I am looking forward to learning as much as I can and hopefully become proficient enough to be considered a long range hunter. I do reload so I have that going for me, and I was able to secure some factory ammo and new wby brass from a guy locally at about half what they are asking in the stores. However, options for scopes, rings, and bases has me more confused than when I started. I don't mind spending money and want the best possible setup for hunting, but don't want to get something that has way more features than I actually need. My question would be what scope (brand, model, power, etc.) would you put on this rifle for hunting purposes if money wasn't a big consideration? Rings and bases? What about an illuminated reticle? Thanks ion advance for any suggestions and/or advice!
