Re: 700 long action what caliber?
If your trying to touch an elk at 800-1000 yrds plus an Edge would be good but what about a 300 WSM
or , I hate to say it but 7 WSM. You would have the action length to seat the better long range bullets out of the case and the recoil would be fine for targets without a brake.
