Re: Is shooting 1/2 moa groups at 1000yds posable for under $2000!
I would say shooting a few 1/2 MOA 3 shot groups would be pretty easy under $2000. But start raising the number of shots to 5 or 10 and saying you will ALWAYS be 1/2 MOA or better, and all bets are off. Shooting 1/2 MOA at 1000yds is easier said than done. And it takes a lot more than expensive gear.
If you're shooting in a 1000yd indoor range with no wind, that makes it a LOT easier. But conditions are rarely that favorable.
I have 3 rifles that will shoot 1/2 MOA or better 1000yd 3 shot groups in perfect conditions, only one of them cost more than $2000 (rifle only).
The 3 rifles I mentioned are as follows:
1) 7mm Rem mag- Rem 700, Brown Precision stock, Timney trigger, 24" barrel Leupold 4.5x14x40
2) 338 Edge - Savage 10, Laminate Joel Russo A5 stock, 28" Pac-Nor Barrel, DE Brake, Nightforce NXS 3.5x15x50
3) 338 Allen Mag, Kirby Allen custom, Bat action, Jewel Trigger, 32" Lilja barrel, McMillan A5 stock, APS brake, Nightforce NXS 3.5x15x50
Don't know if this helped, but thats the way I see it,
If some is good and more is better, then too much is just right.
