What is "long range" in your neighborhood?
The only Trijicon that I would think suitable for target shooting is the Accupoint 5-20X and there are a lot of other choices.
Are you a proficient handloader or have a large ammunition budget?
I live in Colorado. Half of the state is plains, and the mountains are treeless in many places.
So, long range would be 1000 yards.
I am NOT that good a shot , YET. But , if the SHTF, maybe it will be needed.
Ammo budget is fine. I do handloading, but I would not call myself proficient yet. I am getting there, however.
One thing I've noticed, 7mm rem mag is still available , as is 270 win, in many places. I'm extremely well prepared in the 270 win area. I plan to build my 7mm stock at this time.
338 Lapua is not only expensive, it's about as plentiful as 9mm ammo, or even 9mm bullets. I have powder and primer , and 200 9mm 115 grain bullets. I only bring up the 9mm as an example of availability.
These are the pros and cons as I see them at this time. But I'm open to learning, always. Hence, my question.
