With an action like that the sky is the limit, have you seen what a large 338 OR 375 is capable of? They are made for the 1000+ yard game.
I am a big Nosler fan, but don't believe everything you read about the BC of the new Accubond Long Range. Their BC's are inflated. One of our prestigious memebers here was kind enough to do a test between the Bergers and the new ABLR. The Bergers rang true, while the ABLR came up short on advertised BC.
A 7mm STW can shoot to 1 mile (1,760 yards). And can easily take game over 1000 yards with 180gr bullets.
