400 is no problem for that cartridge. I've got two rifles that have killed rockchucks at 800+ yards. 105 Amax and 87 Vmax will both make it to 1000 in my experience. I've got a slow twist, short barreled rifle also that has taken chucks at 400+ with 60 grain Sierras.
I did just get a 6BRX reamer though, going to build another rifle I suppose to try it out.
