1500+ yard calibers

As the title states, I'm looking for a good cailber to shoot 1500+ yards. I want something that has easy to find ammo and reloading components. Any suggestions?

    I have identified a number of cartridges that will meet your general requirement (1500+) - see the Cartridges page.

    As far as ammo, see the Ammo Matrix on the Ammo and Ammo Components page.

    Unclear why you are looking for both ammo and relaoding components - most folks I've met will go one way or the other. See the Reloading Equipment page for info on such tools and see the Ammo and Ammo Components page (as above) for the ammo components (for reloading).

    Please provide more info as to what you're looking for (and budget) and folks can be more helpful.

    My budget would be about $400 for a couple hundred rounds of reloading components. Reloading is no problem for me.

    Are you planning on hunting or target shooting, or both. Will
    you being carrying your rifle very far? Do you plan on shooting a lot or
    just a few times a month? The more info you give us the more we
    can give you.

    Also you might want to save some money up for components, $400
    can go quick with 1500 yd cartridges.

    I can budget some more if needed. I plan on shooting maybe 2 or 3 times a month, just target shooting and I don't plan on having to carry my rifle very far

    Do you have a rifle you plan on rebarreling or are you starting from scratch? If you have a rifle to be rebarreled, what are the action (brand/model) and the bolt face?
