The Sierra 175 MKs will do a good job at 1000 yards on targets and also works well on animals. The animals don't seem to complain about being killed by a single shot rifle.

I am not sure what you meen by this but I have ran the old 155 SMK at 2900 in -20 degree air at under 100' ASL with perfectly straight bullet holes at 1K.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
