Well folks, I have been doing some more Long Range shooting and I have been bitten by the bug. Having only shot up to 300m before, I found a LR club and I'm hooked!
So, I have a question:
I'm thinking of getting a L-R rig. My question is which rifle?
I'm mainly a hunter so what I'd like is a suitable rifle for hunting that also will be able to turn in a "respectable" performance pushing 300-1000m
So, after having read around the subject some, I'd like some advice on chambering and rifle.
My current thoughts are to fit in with my current stable:
7x64 Brenneke - Voere, M98 clone
9.3x62 Mauser (express sighted, mainly boar in the thick stuff rifle) - FN Commercial
M98 type action, long barrel
300WM or 338WM (I don't reload, yet, and these have a lot of factory options)
Thinking the Winchester Model 70 Alaskan (25" Barrel, Stainless, laminate stock so nice and stable).
But, that is just my initial thoughts - I'd be very willing to heed better advice from those in the know.
.300 or .338WM or something else (7mm Rem Mag springs to mind but not sure enough different from the 7x64)
Make of rifle and or modifications that wold make.
Folks, I thank you in advance for your wisdom.
(PS, think am sorted for optic but suggestions are welcome too!)
