Mauser action, custom hand made stock, shooting 160 gr. nosler partisions at about 3400fps. 300 Wheatherby case necked down to 7mm. Just wondering what your opinion is of these rifles since i dont really have a rifle made specifically for long range.
Thinking elk sized animals which includes terminal energy as consideration.
Medium range: 0 - 800 yards - 25 Gibbs
Medium range: 0 - 900+ - 270 Gibbs
Long range: beyond 1K 700-300 Weatherby.
Just cause it doesn't have a McMillan A5, Jewel trigger and a Nightforce scope it doesn't mean you don't really have a rifle made specifically for long range. Using it for LRH makes it "made" for LRH.
