Have step one complete for my quest to put together a long range rig. Sent payment on a zeiss 6.5-20X50 Rapid Z 1000 today. Next step is to settle on a rifle. (Leaning towards a 300 win mag chambering in something) I'm favoring a Savage Law Enforcement 110 FCP-k. I've been pretty impressed with all the Savages I've been around. At least step one is satisfied. I always like to purchase an optic before a rifle that way I don't cheap out on optics. LOL Been fun researching ballistics over and over. Seem to have come around full circle with my initial plan. Gonna shoot the 200 grain Gamekings.

Ya got a darn good start.....

300 Win ain't too shabby. Get a configuration that will have weight/solidness and barrel length for LRH.

Keep us posted.....

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
