Mine isn't set up quite as nice as yours will be, but it's my first LR rifle and I was on a budget. Savage 12 single shot action, 28" Pac-Nor 3 groove bbl with a 1:8 twist chambered for 264 Win. Mag. (trying to be unique). Stock and trigger by Fred Moreo. Brake by Pac-Nor. Mounts are now Burris dual dovetail Signature setup (wanting Badger or Farrel next). Scope is Leupold 8.5-25x40.
I use it as a live varmint rig and have shot it out to almost a mile at PD's (threw dirt on one of 'em). May try 1,000 BR sometime, but no tight neck and not a very efficient cartridge. But at 28 pounds, the .264 Win. Mag. free recoils about an inch and is a pleasure to varmint hunt at long range with all day long...look Ma' no bruise.
This was a groundhog hunt last year. Only got one shot and my buddy just missed it at about 750 yards.
As for target accuracy, I've not really wrung it out yet. I've shot a few .2's at 100 and the only long range target I shot was at 540 yards and it went like 4.2 inches. For someone that doesn't shoot BR, I was very pleased.
Probably not much help on your questions, but I though you'd like to see the rig and keep your fire stoked.
