most service rifles do it easily with open sights. a quality ar upper with competition sights costs $700, a konus spotting scope costs $200. so long as you can get to the target supersonic you are good to go. for instance a 20 inch bbl with a 77 or 80 grain sierra, and a 1/7 twist. the toughest part is not the cost of the hardware, it is your skill at reading the wind.
