    There are several hotels in Wah including a 3 + star hotel at Wah where reasonable rates are available.
    We have planned a tent village how ever and will be greater fun and free of charge for participants accompanying guests will be accommodated at nominal charges.

    Beginners should start from where ? to participate for 400yrds or have to practice somewhere else before ? and where to get some coaching ? and practice sessions for 400yrds , initially.

    This is interesting, in fact very exciting. I think I'll buy good optics first and the rifle second. What kind and specification of rifle scope do I need for 800?

    A magnification of from 8 to 12, or 4 to 16 is good. The main thing is how much you want to spend and what rifle you are using. How ever I appreciate your thinking, the first thing is optics. Pl do not settle for less than a Meopta, or a Leupold. The higher end are Night force and Then Schmidt & Bender PM 2, Kahles, Zeiss and Hensoldt are the top enders. Some professionals would use 5-25 X 56 S & B PM 2 only.

    Skeeter, I've only been able to find Leupold dealership (Hira Arms Lahore). Night force and Carl Zeiss are available in Karachi along with Swarovski. Is there any versatile scope that fits most platforms?

    Swarovski's dealer is Buksh Elahee, Lahore. He has good variety of these. You can find Carl Zeiss and Schmidt & Bender at Majeed Sons (Only if he is in the mood to sell one to you).

    For 800 Yards, you need something bigger than. 308 win. May be 7mm remington magnum or 300 winchester magnum or 338 laupa. But the availability of these is big question mark. You will have to check with Majeed Sons and Buksh Elahee for such rifles.

    I contacted Hira Arms on Friday. The guy was almost shouting at me when I asked a couple of questions about Leupold options. I called him up again on Saturday and he was a changed man altogether: Sweet as a pie. I agree with Leon, it's the attitude and the mood at that particular moment that matters.

    To be very honest with you guys, my problem is the budget. I have absolutely no idea about rifles. So maybe I'm a fool around looking for a .308 in 2,25,000/- price range (max), I don't know. But if my intended caliber does not come in that price flavour, then what's the next best caliber I should down grade to?

    .308 is the best option because Ammo is cheap, otherwise 30-06 & 7mm Magnum is the alternative but Ammo is expensive.

    Or may be 7x57 (standard 7mm).

    7mm is not the caliber for even 400 yards.
