Re: Cartridge Selection For Long Range
You have a 7mm Krieger. If it were me I'd go with some 7mm/284.
None of the 7mm chamberings you listed are very popular for competition but all can be used. 7mm-08 is the hardest to reach that far.
The 260 is well known and extremely capable. The Creedmoor looses a little velocity to the 260 but that's all. If you choose one these two chamberings, tap your ruby slippers together and repeat theres no powder like H4350 powder, theres no powder like H4350 powder (LOL)
I shoot a self built semi custom in 260 to 1000 yards for comps. Oh, it's this week end.
But sticking with the 7mm Barrel, if it were me - in the following order:
I have an unfinished 284 to try for F-Open or other 1000 yard shooting. So I'd guess I take my own advice.
