Re: Help on long range caliber?
I agree that the 280AI is a fine caliber. If you are still somewhat new to the LR game, the 280AI wont frustrate you as much as other calibers. It is very forgiving and effective.
Another good middle weight is the 300 WSM
. This caliber is also very forgiving yet effective.
A good heavy weight alot of guys around here are toying with is the 338 Edge. It is still extreemly forgiving for accuracy and its effective range is staggering. The downside is that the recoil goes up quite a bit.
Welcome and enjoy!
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.
