Re: Long range hunting rifle - what do you use?
My long range rig is a .300 AAHS Magnum,
Blueprinted, trued, squared, leveled, plumbed, scrubbed and etc., etc.,
A 29" #7 Varmint Contour Hart Heavy Bbl, fluted, braked, target crowned, cryo-ed, tri-laxed, polished etc.,
Jewel target trigger, HS Precision Stock,
On top sits a scope I really like!!
A 30mm tube Burris Black Diamond 4-16X 50mm posi/lock with ballistic plex reticle.
The rifle groups 1/4"- 3/8" groups @ 100 yards and 1"- 1 1/4" groups @ 300 yards consistently with Hornady 178 Grn. A-Max bullets coated with tungsten disulfide... Velocity chronographed @ 3530- 3560 fps (20 rnd Average) loaded with 98 grn. of RL 25 ..
Will be working up a load with 200 grn. Accubonds, hopefully 3300 fps with good accuracy..
Haven't hunted with it yet , but will test it on moose this season and hopefully a nice brown bear...
