A few other forums recommended Sniper's Hide when my questions started getting a bit esoteric, so here I am, hoping to learn from your vast collective wisdom [img]<
I've been looking for a rifle capable of hitting targets repeatedly at 1,000 yards in .260 Remington, for (not including optic) somewhere in the $1,000 range. Would rather not spend $1,500 unless it's a night and day difference heh.
I'm accurate enough to be at a point where I want more of a challenge, but on a budget where I can't just get an AI AWM, slap a Schmidt&Bender scope on it and call it a day [img]<
I do happen to live in Texas where a 1,000 yards worth of shooting room (and then some) isn't far off.
I'd also like to use the rifle for game hunting at shorter ranges, namely feral hogs and deer (and maybe pronghorn when I find myself with an excess of cash). From what I can tell, .260 Rem. will work. I'd go with .308, but .260 seems to be much better suited for long range work with the average BC for .260 rounds vs .308 and (hopefully) doesn't differ much from .308 for hunting purposes.
At the moment, I have my eye on a Tikka T3 Super Varmit, but other than a Savage rifle or two, don't know what's out there in that caliber / price range. Suggestions?
