leam Posted December 7, 2022 Share Posted December 7, 2022 Being new, again, to precision rifle, I'd appreciate critique of my reentry plan. Please share your wisdom. I'm going to attend a long range rifle course the end of the month. I attended one a few years ago; I had a great teacher, but my foundational skills and hardware weren't there. Shot some NRL22, and then life overcame my drive. My goal for the class is to enjoy it, and re-learn as much as possible. I'm happy to rent their gear, since it'll be what I need and won't break the personal bank. My Savage Axis (223) under a Millett won't take me to 1,000+ yards. After class, if I'm still enthused, then I'll look at a 22LR bolt gun and a decent starter scope. Rifle selection is limited by my being a lefty. So far the options seem to be the Tikka T1X or the CZ457. I'm open your suggestions. The 22 will give me a cheap way to practice the drills and skills from the class, and build the foundation that I'm so lacking in. I have fantastic spousal support, but it would take a year to save up for a "real" PRS style rifle. Given that I'm old, and have a bad back, actual competition isn't going to happen, but I can practice like it. Shooting the 22 for a year, with occasional trips to the long range with a rental rifle, should get me to the point where I can actually use the nice hardware. How can I improve this plan?
