and wat cal do u reckon? i was mabey thinking 300 cause ammo not to unafordable but open to other cal's?

iv flexable on price
im open to all opinions cheers
I've been going to some 1000 yd bench matches in PA for a while now. I don't shoot a lot but I do observe what seems to work and in my opinion if you want to punch paper or ring a gong at 1000 yards dub caliber cartridges seem to be the consistent scorers. I'm talking 6 BRs, 6 Dashers, and 6.5-284. I friend of mine was shooting a custom light gun in .300wsm last year and had decent results, this winter he built one in .30 Gibbs and is getting in dialed in after a couple rough matches.
