HI everione.

Im saving for a new rifle and wonder wich woull be the best for starting long range shooting(up to 500yds for me).The accumark in 340 is my first choose.

My other temtation are vanguard, 700 rem, TomsonCenter pro hunter and tika. All in 338win that is my other option insted of 340.
The TomsonCenter pro have the more point to my with the swich barrel tec.
Any sudgestion or preferrence? Maybe other mark of rifle???
Thank in advence.

I don't know "witch" rifle best, but a gorgeous D'Arcy Echols .270 cast a potent spell on me once.

Sorry, I just couldn't pass that one up.;)

Seriously EH, I would strongly recommend the Weatherby Vanguard Sub-MOA .338 WM.

If you want this 338 for long range hunting, then I recommend the 338 RUM in the REM 700 version. The ability to customize and build on this action is near limitless

Re: Witch rifle best?

What do you plan on hunting? I have a 300wsm submoa vanguard. Many vanguards I have owned all have a weakness IMO a bad trigger. Some worse than others. I have been able to get them all to shoot and shoot well with some load development.
