Which aiming system? Help.

I have a Remington 700 BDL SS .300 Ultra that will print 200 gr Accubonds into 1/2 inch at 100 yards. Less if I have a good day. I have taken a few shots over 500 yards and made them just by using the old holdover method. What system (i.e. turrets or reticle or??) would best serve my rifle on shots out to say, 700 yards? The Leupold Custom looks good as I already have a VX-2. What should I do?

    I think Leupolds ballistic reticle only goes to 500yrds. A dot at 100 crosshairs
    at 200 and mill dots at 300,400 and 500yrds.and it works great as long as
    conditions remain the same or you re,zero under the current conditions.

    You must send them very accurate ballistic data for the round to be used.

    For normal hunting 100 to 3or 400yrds it works great but at extended
    distance the error is to much so I would go with the turrets and develop
    a good ballistic table for all yardages to be shot in 25yard increments
    or MOA and with windage effects.

    I also recomend a scope that has turrets that can be disengaged and turned
    to zero once you zero the scope.this way after the shot it is easy to
    return to your original zero.

    I hope this helps

    I like the Burris Ballistic Plex. Buuris also has the Ballistic Mil-dot.
