    Hello from Southern California

    Hey everyone..

    Im 55 and currently in LA area. Just picked up a nice used 700 varmit 26" heavy barrel 308. Looking forward to finally starting this highly addictive and expensive sport.

    God Bless

    Welcome Mike, from North Alabama. I got my start with a Rem 700 SPS Varmint. A very accurate and fun rifle to shoot. We are looking forward to reading more as you progress with your new rifle.

    Howdy Mike and welcome to the Forum from New York.

    Congratulations on your 700 Varminter. I have owned a number of them, though mostly in more varmint oriented calibers. You will find that you can use that rifle to shoot out to a 1,000 yards if you want to. THe .308 is a very versatile caliber with lots of options.

    I have too many high cost hobbies, which is why I am still working three jobs in my 70s.

    Welcome. I own 2 700’s. A Varmint in 223 and a SPS Tactical in 308. If you end up shooting a lot you’ll probably end up reloading. Good luck and enjoy.
