what will meet my needs best?
..hi, i am trying to figure out which way to go w/ a build i'm planning for my winter break. i like the looks of an SPR w/ 18" barrel; however, i think it is more than i need & a more manageable/moveable rifle RECCE w/ 16" barrel would suit me best.
my needs: i am going prairie dog hunting next year w/ my father so that got me going w/ the project & i want something that will make that an enjoyable experience. additionally, the range where i shoot mostly is 250-275m max.
my desire: i want a rifle that is precise for the distances i'll be shooting; yet, a versatile platform for the future & easy to move/deploy compared to the WW2 era rifles i currently shoot.. Enfield 303, M1 Garand, M14, Mosin-Nagant, 1903A3, 8mm Mauser.
