Hello, I am looking at getting into long range compedative shooting and am needing some opinions. I am thinking about starting at 500 to 1000 yards. Also I was recommended the browning x-bolt stainless stalker 7mm as a first gun for this. It is a beautiful gun but I am looking for some peoples thoughts. Lastly does anyone have a good recommendations for a scope that would work for that? I am looking in the $800 range for the scope. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
