Pictures of big heavy longrange rifles -let's see them.
Howdy guys ,
Building a big heavy longrange hog thumper and would like to get some ideas for a build.
I have a 280ai rem 700 that Nathan Dagley built for me -it's a heavy sporterweight type rifle -it will kill most any hog i know but i want something that will absolutely hammer a big hog.
I'm living back in the southeast now so this gun will not be carried more than 200 yards -and if i have to carry it that far it will be on flat ground.My plan is to get some type of wheeled golf club bag type set up or a game cart to carry the -gun -rest -all the stuff we use for LRH'ing.The rifle will be shot from a shooting house from a benchrest set-up over bait.
I plan on useing a rem 700 built as a single shot and i know you can't hang a gigantic barrel off that action so could someone give me a little insight on a barrel-block type set-up and a ballpark figure of what that costs?
What do you guys think of the 375 rum for this ?
Would i be be better off sticking w/the .338 edge type cartridge ?
The reason i need a gun like this -cartridge wise is b/c if a huge bore hog is near the edge of a field and gets hit w/a so-so type cartridge it can run and dive into a literal jungle of dense swampy underbrush that takes a search party or buzzards to find the hog.
As stated i want an absolute hammer -something that will be big and powerful enough that i don't have to wait for a hog to stand broadside -something powerful enough for tx heart shots if need be
-700yds would be the outside yardage for the rifle 300-500 would be way more likely .
OK then thanks for any pictures and imput.
