Re: First long range shoot
The first scope I had on my 300 RUM was the VX2 6-18x40 target. I was worried I would not get to 1000 yards w/out doing anything special. However, if you look at the ballistics with a 200yd zero, the 300 RUM shoots like a laser compared to some. You wont need to do anything special to get out to 1000 yards. However, I did upgrade to a 4.5-14x50 30mm tube MK4. I have shot out to 1150 yards and dont have special bases or rings. I just slap the dang scope on the rifle, bore sight it, and load test, then click up and shoot the thing.
