remove the bolt and load from the back. It's fast and no bullet deformation or scratches.
And as I stated in another thread, Look at the 6mm Dasher.
6br is supersonic to around 1300yds.
It's a respectable target round to 1k.
It's competitive to 600yds.
It's easy to load for.
Lapua brass and ammo is readily available.
And, they're great fun to shoot for thousands of rounds.
It's everything he asked for up front.
Now if you want to anchor an Elk at 950, then you need to look elsewhere.
6XC, Dasher, BG, etc isn't going to do that either. And, if you're really trying to be competitive at 1k or beyond, then you need to look at heavier calibers.
Like your opening question/statement... how far?
The next question is... What are you shooting at?
