    howdy all,

    first off my appologies if this somehow seems disjointed, i'm writing this at the end of a long day, and i'm not to good at " speaking of or asking questions about" something, till i've been around it awhile.

    recently, in the course of looking for a new/closer to home shooting sport, after having to sell off most of my collection to pay medical bills, (i had been shooting SASS Cowboy action matches for about two years now but it's 90-120 min drive to the nearest matches, too close to overnight and a PITA to get up in time for match day, adn now my gear is sold off) i stumbled upon High Power Silhouette (as well as "regular" NRA HP) at my local gun club.

    since it interests me, and the firearms used for the "hunter" class (i get that right??) are of a type that i'd either be buying anyway, or if i lost interest i could easily sell to a local deer hunter. i've decided that i want to look into shooting the HP silhouette game.
    so i have some questions and more may come later.

    first off, is there any inherent problem with using a Savage "package gun" (the guns that are sold with a boresighted scope already on-board) as a "starter set"?? i know from past experience that the savage M-10/11/16 family ARE accurate guns, and once the lighter weight versions get the new "accu-trigger" they'll be even better (yes i've tried one out) . But i don't know if the scopes and mounts are even worth bothering with, or if i'll get said gun home try it out once and strip it down and replace the sight system....

    second is there any advice you nice folks can pass on?? i'm fairly open to mopst suggestions. but will say that as far as firearms i shoot, in the "bolt gun" Dept, i stick with Ruger, savage, and occasionally Remington.

    well thank you for your time. any and all input is appreciated.

    P.S. just a clarification the savage would be for Silhouette only, i intend to build and shoot a Service rifle class AR for "regular HP"
