This is going to be a range rifle. Not looking to get into competition shooting, just looking to shoot. Both messing around and long range.

Although, if you shot it every now and then I can't see it doing any harm. I mean, the fact that steel cased ammo is even made says something about it's usability and I don't see any harm in shooting it every now and then.

Now as far as scopes/rails, 20 moa rails tend to be the most common and would give you a good medium considering you want to shoot somewhere between 100-1000yds.
However, you need to take into account the tube size, elevation capabilities of your scope....
So with that being said, what we really need to know is your budget for optics.
I would be willing to spend up to $600 on a good optic. Hell, thats more then I spent on the gun :P
