Long story short, got a new job with way better pay check and in the mood to buy something firearms related. Was given the okay by boss man to bring a rifle to work since its out in the country side. So here's my question, do I use this as an excuse to finally buy a new rifle or do I say forget it and buy a reloading press? Background info: have a .243 as well as two .22LRs, but I've been wanting a .17HMR for a long while. Only looking to spend $300.00 on rifle or kit. The rifle would be used for the odd fox and coyote as well as on gophers. Shots wouldn't be more then 100-150 yards. I know I can get both at separate times, but it's trying to figure out what one to get first. So what would you guys do, grab a rifle or a reloading kit?
