I have a good friend at D9 Firearms that can hook me up with a better and longer barrel if I want, I'm just trying to figure out if that is the best option right now. If I could accomplish lethal shots out to 700yds with my setup, then I'm cool with that for now. I really want to get some time behind the trigger practicing long shots and learning the technique. If I'm going to blow the thing apart and start over then I think I really want a .260 or 6.5creedmoore. Also I would probably start reloading the .308 with Varget, since I've been using that and am fairly familiar with it.
So what are your thoughts now?
I'd just try staying with the same set up you are using then for now and see if you can still shoot under 1 MOA at 300.
If you can then you should be able to hold MOA at 700.
You will have to stay as suggested with the lighter bullets though to keep any decent velocity at all at those ranges.
Of course the .260 is going to out perform the .308 if you decide to go that way but if you are happy with what you have now no sense spending the money till you are ready to do so on the change over.
Generally though even out of the longer barrels the .308 you are limited to about 600yds max for anything bigger than coyotes.
