Ive been competing in NRA, CMP, and ROTC, sense high school, and would love to offer any advise on rifle shooting I can.
The first advice ide give, is its the caliber not the make that matters. For 100yrds all manufactures will be about the same(yes some will be higher quality, but realistically unless you want to start competing you don't really need to spend the extra cash for oh say a Tikka)
If 100 yrds is what you looking to do, and you don't need to shoot farther or hunt, the the calibers ide recommend to you are; .22, .223, .22-250( I see lots of praise for .204 as well, honestly never used that one but have heard good things). All are relatively inexpensive rounds to buy in bulk, and the latter to will be fun for you if you ever decided to go to a larger range. ( on a side note, honestly ALL calibers are fine up to 100 yrds and if you dont plan on ever going to a longer range, .22 is the way to go, I personally like to feel a little something in my shoulder when i pull the trigger)
hope that helps!
