Remington 7mm-08 with 168 gr. Berger vld. It will hammer deer and black bears over 1,000yds. My wife and 2 of my friends wives shoot the same loads in all their rifles and they are all deadly out to 1,255 yds. Very little recoil with 26" factory rifle. No brakes.
But all of them shoot alot. 2-3,000 rounds a year.
Practice and shot placement!
