I am wanting to buy a rifle to shoot 1K or farther. I have been looking at the getting the Remington 700 Long Range(300 Win Mag, 26"). I have found it at my home outfitters in Grand Junction, Co. for $699. The price check was done around last Thanksgiving, so price may have been adjusted. I would have to go back to Co. to buy anything worth while. I have also been turned on to Lucid scopes. Amazon is selling the Lucid scope 6-24x50MM for $353 and change. The only thing I haven't really looked into was a good bipod.
So, the questions go out to the long range shoots out there.
1. Does anyone have experience with either of those products? The 700 has been around and has proven itself, but I was wanting to get some feedback. Also, I know Lucid is really inexpensive compared to name brands. I would rather buy quality upfront, but don't want to shell out 1k or more for a piece of glass.
2. Bipods? I have heard of Atlas, but I have no experience with bipods.
Thanks for the help.
