I do have a Romey AK that works well at 100yds.



And this Colt that reaches out a few more yards.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

You might want to stay with the AR platform. You can upgrade caliber and ballistic performance by simply purchasing a new upper. Take a look at the .204 Ruger, or the 6mm class. The Midway catalogue has an extensive selection, take a browse through it and see - you can go all the way to .5 Beowulf. Recoil wise the AR platform will treat you the best IMHO no matter what the caliber choice.

I'd prefer to buy something with a piston system. Budget isn't a concern, because I'm willing to save up and research for a good gun. I'm not new to the gun world, but I would like some additional help. Thanks.
Research the M14/M1A rifles then. Reliable, accurate, versatile. 7.62x51mm.


This one is mine.

Try a BAR in 300 win mag. You will be able to deliver "hurt" from the muzzle to 1000 yards. The gas action tames the recoil. If it still is a bother, a softer butt pad will take it down to powder puff levels. It's got much less felt recoil than my pump .30-06.
