I have a real strong itch to get a entry level sniper rifle set-up and was thinking of a Remington 700 tactical in .223 being I already load the round. However, I'm getting offers on a SPS Tac in .308 and deliberating whether or not to get into it. I don't need arguments for or against the cost of conversions... well aware of what it will cost me in terms of $$$ and time. What I do want to know it thoughts in using a progressive for the task. I've heard reports of 1 inch at 200 yards with good components which would be fine. How do you guys think the Dillon powder measures up? I would think to stretch out later to 500 yards and beyond another type of powder measure would be in order. Lastly do you guys have some numbers for cost of components buying bulk, leads on where to get them and recipes? I'm thinking 250-300 a month to start would be my needs. Wanna kill these ads?
