Yes, I probably dont have the lingo down yet... YET! I went to a competition yesterday which was pretty cool. Targets @ 400, 600 and 700 yards and probably 50 competitors. Most of them wont say much about what they have in their guns but i did hear a few say 338 Lepue? was the one to have. I was thinking more along the lines of 308 because of the lack of people in that group (4) but I have no idea what would be needed to compete. is a remington 700 and a good scope going to get me a top 3 out of 5 finish? Or whats the platform that everyone is using or you would recommend?
