That's definitely what I'd like to do next. I already have the .223, but I'd like to add a .308.

i enjoy the shooting for distance target shooting. theres a lot more challenge trying to hit a single target say 800 yards out trying to compensate for wind and drop. hardest part is keeping things steady and judging that wind speed. if your off by just one mph it could be the difference of going from dead center to being 10 inches off.

i have been doing a fair bit of reading, Remington series 700 had a fair amount of aftermarket parts that are easily obtainable. would work well for me i hate having to try and find someone to make a custom part because its not provided. some things i can handle and make in my own shop but others i just dont have the precision tools.

I wouldn't bother with the 308 myself. It's BC is terrible and begins to severely slack off past 500 yards. This is the reason why I built my gun on the 6.5 Grendel round as it has better BC at long range and is better at 800-1,000 than the 308. Only downside is at that range the 6.5 Grendel doesn't have as much kinetic energy as the 308.

If you really want a long range gun look into 260 rem or 7mm.

Good to know. I've mainly only shot handguns and more recently my .223, but never long range.

Small world! I met the owner when I first got my car, and I've seen him at a couple of street meets here in Houston. Seems like a really cool guy.

Any of my Gen 5 Camaro brethren know what it is?

I got it, it's a time warp machine camoflauged to look like a really old rifle.

FG 42 built for the airborne infantry.

I found that exact same pic on these guys website. A gun maker in texas makes them as well.

After looking at them I would love to have one as well but I can't see dropping $5,000 for one.

Thats a ACOG specifically designed for the 50 BMG!

Shown mounted on my BA-50 at a 600 yard range, effectively hitting the targets down range!

I don't deny its strength but I'd be doing 1000 yards + with a .50

Considering most combat kills with BMG's are less than 600 yards, it's perfect!

However, if I want to reach out beyond 600+ , this is my back-up
