    Sometimes I have no idea what people are talking about when they discuss rifles and accuracy and hitting a target, but you don't necessarily need a heavy rifle or a so called "Sniper rifle" to hit a target accurately and at longer ranges, today I was looking at some rifles at Dick's sporting goods, and they had some Remington 700 BDL rifles that looked pretty good, and I am sure that I could do some pretty accurate shooting from 300 to 400 meters prone offhand.

    MAYBE!

    The way I see it, if I can service the "target" effectively at 300 - 600 meters, that is all I care about.

    Alpha.....just get a heavy-barreled Rem 700 barreled action.....have it trued by a gunsmith, throw in a Timney trigger, bed it to a McMillan or H-S Precision stock....and spend twice as much as you did doing all that on a good scope....and go have fun with it! $3000 bucks later, you have a "tacti-cool" rifle man.
    God show's mercy on drunks and dumb animals.........two outa three ain't a bad score!

    Look, don't bedazzle the guy, just get him into a good stock he'll be happy with...eh?
