Hello from North Dakota, I am a avid hunter and I presently shoot a 7mm rem. mag. and I am would like to get your opinions on what caliber/rifle you think is the best for long range shooting. I am also lefthanded. Thank you!
I totally agree, I am not a remington person myself. I was hoping to get some feedback on savage rifles. I was thinking about a 300 ultra-mag. Something I can hunt elk or seer which I can do with my 7mm magnum already. I'm looking for something to be confident with out to 1000 yards. I presently shoot with nikon optics.
Best of the west guys don't seam to have any problem killing elk with a 7rem mag at a 1000 with 168 bergers. It is the cartridge they use the most.
If I were looking for an elk gun I would probably get the same thing you have.
If you are looking for more horsepower than the 300 ultra would be a good choice.
Most of my guns are hard recoiling large magnums and I seam to be going the other way to smaller calibers. For me they are more fun to shoot. I practice more with them and that makes me more confident. Shot placement is the most important thing. A bad shot with a bigger gun is usually still a wounded animal.
