Re: what is your favorite long range caliber

Completely depends on the situation.

If I had to choose one for all situations I'd grab my 338Edge(13lbs), if I needed an extreme long range hammer I'd grab my 338Allen Magnum (18lbs), if I had to carry it all day long, I'd grab my 7mm Rem Mag (8lbs)

I don't have a single favorite, I have 3 favorites. Funny thing is, my longest biggame kill (around 800yds) is with the 7mm.

Re: what is your favorite long range caliber

Guys I'm shooting a Rem 700 BLD with a 28" Douglas barrel in 7mm STW 1in9 twist. I would like to shoot Bergers 180's hunting bullet. I can not find any load data reguarding this cartridge. Any input would be great. Thanks.

308 Win, 338 Edge, 7mm WSM in that order.

I am with AJ though, it depends on the situation. But if a law was passed stating I could only own 1 rifle, it would be my 308 without hesitaition. All others would exit.

Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.

I believe Retumbo has been the most successful powder for heavy bullets in the 7STW.

Retumbo 77gr/Berger 180gr VLD is a very accurate load in my APS 7STW.
