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.
