Re: Long range cal

I just tried out my 308 WarBird yesterday and couldn't be happier with it, shot a 3/8" group right out of the box with my handloaded 168gr. SMK's. This caliber is very close to the weatherby 30/378 and kicks like a 270 with the Dlask brake I had installed on it. Sounds to me like this might be a caliber you would like to look at.

    CM,

    What action did you use on that beautifull Baer built aluminum stocked rifle of yours? Also, what caliber was it again?

    Have you got a pic of that white stocked beauty of yours too, a discription of it would be nice also. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Thanks.

    Have you considered the 7 WSM at all? I know the guy shot it at the mile shoot you were telling us about, and did very well, so it does seem to have the potential, ya?

    Len, hey there 7mm aficionado, what are your thoughts on the 7 WSM?

    What case would I go with for a 1500 yard shot in a carry rifle?

    I know of a fellow that has my chambering 338/416 which is bigger then your Yogi and he made the longest kill I know of with a bypod. 2890 yards. It was on an elk and your Yogi with a lighter stock and by-pod would be fine.

    With that being said, how about a 300 RUM or the Tomahawk or the 338 RUM or the 338 Laupua in a lighter rifle and by-pod??? Don't forget a muzzle brake to.

    You have so many choices but the Yogi will do it to.

    I think it would be something in the 338 shooting the 300 grain bullet for the 1500 yard shots, especially in the wind.

    That bullet is hard to beat.

    The action is a 10 inch Bat I have 2 bolts for it one is for a 6.5/284 and the other is my 338 YOGI.
    I cant find a pic of my LG I will post one later here is another of the aluminum stocked rifle with the 6.5-284 barrel on it
    I am thinking the 300 rum imp or a 30-338 LM dont want to shoot a 338 yogi in a 12 LB gun [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

    Thank you for the help I was hoping to build a more portable rifle that is capable of making clean kills out to 1500 yards. This rifle will have a muzzle brake on it for sure. Would the Toahawk work with a 30 inch barrel or should I go with a longer toob?
