I'm currently in the process of getting my gun license and looking at possibilities for my first rifle. I'm 19 and was in the Australian Army as a grunt so i was thinking .223 would be my best bet as a starter rifle. Wont be shotting anything more than rabbits and foxes and targets out to 250 - 300 Max. I've been tossing up between the Tikka T3 Lite and the R700 SPS, so price range around $600 - $700 US. Any suggestions?
