    I registered so that I could comment on your answer to a rather open question; Thank you! Not so much for your answer though I agree 100% but that you'd take the time and effort to so completely give the OP such a complete answer without it sounding condescending. Think I'll hang around a while, see if there are more like you.



    Probably the most profound statement to date on any shooting forum I have ever visited:

    Nate, Thank you so much for taking the time to post such a detailed outline on a journey to happiness if not contentment in the search for perfection in long range shooting. I'm new to this sport and reloading also and looking forward to improving my shooting ability over the coming years. I plan to print your post out and pin it above my new reloading bench. Thanks again, Dennis.

    On other thing that can help. Take a course with someone good. Why make all the mistakes yourself? You can miss a lot of the mistakes spending time with a good instructor for a couple of days.

    Look, I spent 26 years in the US Army Special Forces as a Sniper and Weapons expert. I have seen everything under the sun when it comes to modifying a weapon. The answer to your question isn't easy to figure out. You have a lot to take into consideration, What exactly are you trying to accomplish? Long Range accuracy out to 1000-1500 yards? Sub-minute accuracy? First start with yourself, if you aren't trained to be a sub-minute accuracy shooter all the modifications and money will not help a thing if you aren't capable of doing it. This isn't a hit on you but it is the real world. All of the manufactures out there have done the work in making the rifles they sell to be 1 minute accurate guns right out of the box, If you spend $2000 on a rifle and buy a $100 scope then you end up with a 100$ gun. So the very first thing is to buy a scope that has a great reputation that you can easily use and start shooting. If you haven't had formal training in long range accurate shooting than consider getting a few blocks of instruction, that will give you a much bigger bang for your dollar than a bunch of "High Speed" parts slapped into your rifle. Once you have done this and you have seasoned your gun and absolutely can't get any more accurate than start looking at modifications to the rifle but do so with an expert weapons specialist that can give you guidance as to what modification suits your shooting style the most. A big thing that helped me was reloading my own ammo, you can play with powder and rifle bullet weights and design to greatly improve your accuracy before you start buying expensive parts. Remember this when you shoot at paper anyone can be a good shooter, but when that paper starts shooting back at you and the heat is on, a great shooter still hits what he is shooting at. So get out there and start shooting, set up a routine that works for you and meets the desire that you have, no one thing on your gun will make you a better shooter if the shooter isn't good to begin with.

    Well, that is just what I need. Thank you very much.

    That has to be the most concise, and useful shooting tip I've ever read.
