It's a 20in .308, but at that price I couldn't resist. It looks like a rebarrel is in my future but only after I shoot the barrel out. Doing the touchdown dance now.

What glass in the sub $1k range will be best? I am currently looking at a Vortex Viper PST Gen 2. Thoughts there? Also, looks like 175gr is the best load for distance in the 1:12 twist?

Now I just need to find a place in CA that I can learn to shoot it. What match is good for newcomers to long range precision rifles in NorCal?

Thanks again. Love you guys.
That's like a police sniper rifle, where they don't shoot any further than 100 yards. You want a 1000 yard rifle. It's like a hammer and a table saw, both good tools, but used for different jobs.
