What Rem. 700 to get for long shots

I was offered a trade at my local dealer any Rem. I want.. I know I would like a 7mm rem mag to get out and do some long stuff.. But what model is best or better. I know I should go with a 26 in barrel ! and have looked at the XHR any good ? please help out with some info on this . good or bad ! should I get a different make ? This will be my first long range rifle . I don't need a good factory ammo shooter I load my own..

What do YOU consider long range? What are you shooting at? What shooting style do you use? (Bench, bipod, prone, offhand , etc) How much weight do you want to carry? There's no best, only appropriate.

Targets first out as far as I can . Practice- Practice-Practice.. then a dear and maybe elk as far as I'm confidant too shoot with a kill and not a wound a animal . bipod and prone I have a light wight rifle for long hikes and stocking . I would love to have a rifle that I could get a dear at 1000 y or more .. and I have 2000 7mm brass that was givan to me ..

i AGREE WITH CPO- for a little lighter gun the cdl; but once you mentioned 1000 yards i defintely say the sendero and the stainless fluted are not that heavy . adjust the trigger load some good ammo , good scope. enjoy . both my 7 and 300 shoot awesome.
