Beginner setup?

More expensive to feed, but worth it.

Beginner setup?

Post by mordecai » Thu Nov 17, 2005 9:42 pm

I've looked a few rifles over trying to find something to get started in this discipline. Anyone have any recommendations?

Action, caliber, trigger?

I can only tell you what I did. I bought a remington 700BDL in 7mm-08. The gun shoots right over MOA (far better than I) and at any time could be taken to the elite status by re-barreling it and placeing it in the new stock I have ordered from it.

The 700's come with a very easily triger to "fix". Simple 2 pound will get you shooting both classes and let you know how big of a leap you want to take into the waters.

I'm understanding something based on the .308-case is smart. (.260, 7mm, .308, etc...)

I certainly want to start out with something in Hunter that does both because I'm too heavy into smallbore to get 2 centerfire rifles all set up right now.

South Sound.

Is there any blanket set-up that's somewhat traditional for beginner's. Like a typical action and replacement trigger?

can't go wrong with a remington 700 action and jewel trigger to start. actually, a well worked 700 trigger will probably be just fine in hunter class. i shoot a factory Sako TRG. relatively inexpensive but somewhat hard to find.

i'm in olympia. are you shooting silhoutte in washington?
