I was doing a little more research yesterday about the rifle I want to get and I noticed one of you had recommended a Weatherby

    I shoot the Howa 1500 which is the same barrel and receiver as the Vanguard (both are the same rifle with various options from Howa). I even put nice Weatherby wood on it so it looks nice too. A great rifle. I consider it to be superior to the Rem 700 and the Weatherby Mark V for reliability and accuracy in general. Mine (pic on profile) is going hunting with me to Montana this Fall. It shoots from he .1 MOA to the .4 MOA range depending on the load.

    The scope depends on conditions. I really like the Leupold VXIII in 2.5-10x50 for most general hunting conditions inside of 400 yards and in low light. I like much larger magnification on varmint rifles so I can aim well out to 1000 yards or so. My Howa 30-06 has a 2.5-10x50 Nikon Monarch and it is almost as nice as the Leupold. I'll be using a Vortex Viper PST FFP 6-24x50 on my very long range elk rifle and it shoots real well giving me one of the best graduated reticles I have shot for long range accuracy and quick ranging. You will be happy with Leupold, Vortex and Nikon when you choose their higher end products.
