EXACTLY what this guy said!!!!!!
I did the same thing. Try and find someone selling a used one, that probably already has some upgrades, get a decent scope... and go to Palmetto State Armory online and buy some Federal Gold Medal Match 175gr for $19/box
Start out with Zeroing at 100 yards, get a program like SHOOTER on your smart phone, and work your way out to 500+
Dont forget to save your brass, because u will either love it, and start reloading, or you will get out of the sport and sell one of US your brass!!! lol
