Re: Long range build

Yes, you could more easily make a 300 win mag out of your 30-06. The bolt face has to be opened up. No feed rail work would be necessary. It would probably feed just fine.

As for more elevation. Start with a higher point of impact at 100 yds. Replace the 20 MOA with a 30 MOA or even a 40 MOA picatinny rail.

Re: Long range build

It's sighted in dead on at 300 yards. It's a Howa 1500 in a 7mm. So far I'm really impressed with it. I'm shooting 168gn burgers. I can get about a5-6" group at 750. Any tips to make that group smaller or is that a good group ?
