Hello everybody, new hear so dont expect to much - lol. Looking at a new weatherby accumark L/H action in 270 wtby mag. with 26" barrel. thinking of topping it with either Kahles or Swarovski 8x56 illum. reticle. A lot of low light shooting. The rifle sells for approx. $1300.00 and scopes are in the $1100.00-$1300.00 range. I have to wonder if I might be spending to much for "out of the box stuff". I have been limiting myself to 300-350 yard shots and feel I need to move up to 500-600 yards. I will probably use this setup just as much for hunting as shooting varmitsand targets. Deer, antelope, and elk (probably limited to 300-400 yards). I cant afford to shoot alot so I think I can deal with the 270's recoil. Wanted to make sure tho I got something that didnt give it up after 300-400 yards. would this be the way to go or am I losing track of something better? I really appreciate any advice that you good ol boys would care to throw at me.
