Re: Remington 700 Mountain Rifle 280

All of the guns you have are god for Hunting but not necessarly for long range shooting. What barrel length on the Ruger 243, it might be the best choice for long range. For hunting you are well gunned out to 400 or 500 yards. How much shooting have you done? What type hunting do you want to do? Hope this helps.

Barrel lengths on all my rifles are 22 inches. So far 160 yards was my longest shot on an Axis doe with my 243

I owned one of them .280 like you have. Unfortunately I had to sell to get something else. You'll enjoy it.

A good start for hunting but now you will buy or build a long range gun, if that is what you want to do.
