First things first I am right handed and left eye dominant. I have come to accept this. I'm looking for assistance with a few things. 1 Caliber .223 vs .308 I have a shitload of once fired .223 brass once fired from a police range I don't want this to be the only deciding factor. .223 Is good out to 600 yards? the longest public range is 200 in this state. 2 Brand Savage vs Remington vs ...? 3 Glass I know you should spend at least what you spent on the rifle on glass. I am looking at an inexpensive scope to start off with for now does anyone make a competitively priced combo anymore I know savage used to. If I'm missing anything or you guys need to ask me any questions to figure out what I should get please ask.
