I need some advise for a new shooting adventure. I want a factory rifle that can be modified and built on to shoot 50 to 400 yds in a local PRS type match. Need to be accurate enough to shoot the KYL 50 yd. targets and capable of, with the right condition, hitting a 18 x24 steel plate at 400 yds. Before everyone starts talking custom builds and questions what ammo, I am very aware of all the avenues there are and that ammo is a commodity that has to be sought after like a rare diamond. Been there and done that in the Benchrest world. That's another discussion for another day. I think it is ridiculous that you can't expect for 15.00-17.00 dollar ammo want shoot in a bucket consistently. How much MOA rail/rings, scope capable to send a .22 lr to 400 yds. Its my opinion that the 400 yd target is not possible on just any day. My budget for a rifle is 500.00. Scope 400.00. No top shelf ammos, Eley, Lapua or RWS. I know this is a subjective venture. If it cant be done then I can get it. Not something Iv'e just got to do. CZ's, Rugers, etc. I'm just interested in REAL LIFE EXPERIENCES.
