For once Holly is not talking total B********s the bit where he said all you need is a decent scope and experience and practice is pretty much on the money you do need good optics but that will not make you a champion, i used to shoot with a guy called John Brisco and he would go to the club to practice he would sit and range find rather than just throwing lead down range after all if you have not got a pretty good idea as to how far a target is you ARE only throwing lead down range.Mr P
