Hello all, I'm a bit of a young buck and have been wanting to get into target comps. I have a decent amount of time behind the trigger built up and I am at the point where I am becoming more consistent at +400 yards. While I am still researching my 1,000 yard gun, I did end up getting a Savage Mark2 for squirrel hunting last year and it is a shooter IMHO (groups an inch or a little better consistently at 100 yards). I did get it with a scope already attached (Bushnell), I ended up pre-ordering a Burris XTR 2 3x15x50 35mm tube to set on it and some nice steel rings to match. All that being said, What improvements would or have you made on a similar rifle? Would you go with that rifle as a beginner rifle for target 22 shooting? Is the scope out to lunch for that type of shooting? Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
