Re: Long range rifle

sean, your 30\06 will be good out to 600yd. And the 30\06 you can get ammo from 125gr to 200gr. One year I used my 06 with 125gr win for woodchucks out to 500yds it did very good.I hope this help.

    for adfordable cost you can get a Savage in 25.06 REM that a fine long range Varmint caliber and powerfull enought for deer , coyote are hard to kill quick without quick bullet expansion as varmint bullet design for light animal and 30 cal bullet wil not expand at 600 yards on coyote .
    another good choice is 280 REM but rifle are less commun , 7 REM mag is another very nice medium range caliber but that a magnum

    good shooting

    Re: Long range rifle

    I have done nothing to either rifle, my only thought of my better groups with my 22-250 is i have a clearer scope mounted on it(simmons 4.5x14). I have shot alot of groups under 1 inch with my 22-250 some even close to half inch, but with the 06 i cant get under 1 inch for some reason. The scope on it is a Tasco world class 3x9. Should i start out with a new scope and if so what are good quality scopes for areound 2-300.

    For the money the Bausch and Lomb 3200 or better yet the 4200 is hard to beat and yes that would be money better spent.

    sean, with my 30\06 I was shooting a group of 5in. I found out that the trigger pull was 8lbs then I got a new trigger from 1.5to3lbs has inprove my group to 3/4 group. I shoot fed prem 150gr that is what my rifle likes and a group under 1/2". You my want to think of having your trigger done and the action glass bedded ,your bult lapedit will give you a better group.
