Need advice on 1000yd hard hitting shooter

Hey everybody, I'm a new member, this is my first thread. I want a 1000yd hard hitting rifle I can make solid kills with (not that I would ever try at that distance) more so want to enjoy 1000yd target shooting. Currently shooting 300wsm and really enjoy it. Kick doesn't bother me at all so not afraid to go bigger and assume I need to customize a bit...

Look forward to your advice,
Thanks,
John

    What you have is capable of it, if YOU are.

    I agree with MTBULLET, the 300WSM is a great round for 1000 with a heavier barrel and enough freebore for big bullets it makes a great target or hunting gun.

    the 1000 yard matches been won quite a few times with a 7wsm. balistics are not much different than a 300wsm. the guns, ammo and and shooter are tuned quite well. what gun do you have? how does it shoot?

    I have the 300wsm in Winchester. It shoots great, I wish I was as consistent! But confident at 300yds w perfect weather. I just love shooting and want to continue the challenge!
