    What do you consider long range? Some might think 300 yds is and others 1,000 yards. No matter what you think though, most of the .300 mags are great calibers. I shoot a .300 Wby.

    Thanks for all the advice. The next question is what is a good scope to put on it?

    I am waiting on a Vortex Viper HS LR 4-16X50 for my 300 RUM.

    The ones I have seen are pretty nice, but I want to put one through the paces.

    I used to have a mark 4 on the 300 RUM that is waiting on the Viper. It was pretty nice, but you can get a lot of scope for Mark 4 money.

    BB does that Vortex have a turret system for it or do you use clicks for drops?

    Well, you click the turret to adjust elevation for your drops, so yes and yes. The elevation turret is exposed. The windage turret is covered. The reticle has both BDC (calibrated in MOA) stadia and windage hashes.

    BB let me know what you think of it. I have a 300 win mag that I was thinking about putting one of the Vortex Vipers on.

    I tell ya what, when I get it setup, we can just run up to Whittecar, and you can check it out yourself. Then we can put it right next to your mark 4, and my Swarovski z3, and let the EF know how it goes. I'll even take some pics. Maybe that would give ssliger some good info for his scope selection.

    That would be awesome and then I can tell you why I actually shoot Leuopld. When do you think you will be getting it?
