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.

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.

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.
