Re: your opintion on a long range setup
If your doing benchrest, go with the Savage Target action and have the 30" 1:10 twist chambered in 300WSM. Use 210 or 215 Bergers and H4350 powder with F210M or CCI BR2 primers. I would use Norma brass, but its up to you which brass you use. This caliber and combo set the record at 1000yds last year in Williamsport at 2.8". I would definitely consider the benchrest stock. Its a very stable platform.
