700+ yards?????

I would definitely advise against shooting at big game that far out.  Most people have no business shooting at game past 150-200 yards.  People who are really good can shoot out to 350-400 yards.  People who are good enough to shoot beyond that are very rare indeed.

Are you shooting paper or big game out there at 700 yards?? Paper I pray.

 

Lot's better canidates for a LR customized rifle at those ranges, friend.

sorry game as in varmits fox, coyote, bobcat i recently shot a 308 at 300 yards with groups the size of dimes  so it got me wanting to build me a gun mostly for target i live in the foothills of  sc so you dont get to many long shots at deer i just wanted opinions of what would be best for my needs and not spend to much money i know you get what you pay for but what is the best for my money

        thanks trey

trey, for the money, you can't really beat a Nikon Buckmaster or for a little more money, a Monarch.

Seriously, that's the direction I recommend.

 

What part of upstate SC are you in? Near Gaffney?
