Re: Any tips and thoughts for a long range rifle?

I've killed quite a few elk with a 400 grain arrow at 290 fps that only delivers 80 foot pounds of energy or so. I have a 6.5 x 284 and a 7wsm. I personally feel that's all I need, but it is fun to listen to those big 338 300 grain sierras hit the target.

Re: Any tips and thoughts for a long range rifle?

Remgton came out with the 700 Long Range this year. It comes outfitted with a Bell & Carlson stock, heavy barrel, x-Mark Pro trigger, and you can buy them for about $700.00. I bought one in 300 Win Mag. I love it. With the heavy barrel and the decellerator pad, it is comfortable to shoot.

I would also not skimp on a scope. Nightforce is a great product. Check them out.
