Re: shooting 600-700 yards

I bought a Tikka T3 in 7 rem mag for my wife.We had a muzzle break on it and I worked a load that will shoot under a half inch at 200 yards. I used 162gr SST bullets. She killed her first mule deer with a rifle this year(only 300) and got a compleate pass through, the buck was DRT. I had her practice out to 700 before season and she consistently was able to hit a 6" swinging taget we set up.

    Have you considered a Cooper? I've got two of them and they both shoot better than the .5 moa they are guaranteed to shoot. I've shot marmots as far as 749 yards so far. Next year I don't expect any trouble breaking the 800 yard mark. This is with a model 52 in .270.

    Run what you've got here. The scopes will get it done. Work up loads and go.

    Have fun,

    Take a look at Kenton Industries. They can laser engrave a knob for your Zeiss Conquest based on your drop table and data. Once all your load development and drop data is done, dialing yardage is much easier and faster. It is true that one knob is not accurate for all the different scenarios you might encounter; bit if you keep shots within 600-700 yds, the knob will be spot on for 90-95% of your hunting situations.

    I have a Sendero in a .270 with a Leupold VX III 3.5-10x.

    It has been shot out to 775 yds with Berger 150 VLDs at about a MOA. Not much energy, but an arrow at 375 FPS seems to do the job. Sendero is a good start for the money.
