    Considering an attempt at some ďlongĒ range shooting.

    I have owned a few different milsurp guns that I bought years ago when the ammo seemed cheaper to shoot. An Enfield in .303, 8mm Mauser, Mosin Nagant, AK, Iíve built an AR in .223 Wilde, and another in 300 blackout. But so far Iíve only shot them out to 100 yards or so.

    Iíve been kicking around the idea of some longer range shooting probably 4-600 yards. I have some family and friends that have land where I could stretch out maybe a little bit further.

    Iíve found that I have a bit of a soft spot for bolt guns. So I thought maybe I would try something ďmodernĒ. Iíve been looking and comparing the 6.5 Creedmoor and the .308. As of right now my budget would be $1100 or so all in, for rifle and glass.

    I already have a decent rangefinder, and a budget spotting scope.
    Iíd be using store bought ammo to start out with for sure. I donít have any intentions on reloading at this time. I used to help dad some years ago on an ancient single stage rock chucker and although it always got the job done, theres no desire at this time.

    There is a pretty nice variety of rifles for sale in the INGO classifieds right now. For glass there is AA Optics.

    The Wylde .223 might work.

    What are the specs on the barrel?

    In fact, Im doing a new release of refurb's today, and you will be able to get a PST 5-25 FFP for under 700 bucks, PST 6-24x50 FFP for 500ish, or Diamondback tactical 6-24 FFP for 300 or so. You will have to be ready to act quick on some of these, others will stay in stock for a couple weeks.

    As far as caliber, either will do what your asking with no issue. 6.5 will do it a little better.

    Kinda sorta...
    So far Iím leaning towards a 6.5 ruger in the american rifle series. The go wild edition ticks an awful lot of boxes for me.

    As far as glass Iím not sure but AA optics seems to be the one Iíll end up buying from.

    the barrel is nothing fancy. Donít even remember what brand it is, lol.
    Itís a lightweight 18Ē 1:8 twist. I think it might have 30-40 rounds thru it, 10 of which were mine.
