Re: Best caliber for long range ?
Welcome to the LRH forum. It's amazing how much knowledge and information is available here. A lot of these guys are experts who will gladly help you take your game to a new level.
Of course, it's all relative. Long range for one guy is 500yds using a 22LR. For someone else, it's 2500yds using the 338 Edge +P.
There is nothing at all unfair or easy about using technology such as laser range finders and good optics. To the contrary, it's easy to use a crappy rifle, ammo, scope, and Kentucky windage to lob bullets into a mountainside.
For me, the best long range caliber is the one that gets the job done.
6br, 6.5x284, 7RM, 300WM, 338 Edge, etc... are all great cartridges as are many others.
6.5x284 is my favorite balance of accuracy, range, and energy with minimal recoil.
