I started shooting long range last year with a DPMS panther LR .308. I am getting good groupings at less than 1 MOA out to about 700 yards, but I am uncomfortable with the energy and velocity at that range for long range deer and elk hunting so I am looking for a good long range deer and elk rifle around $800 (gun only, I already have a scope). Right now I am leaning towards a 300 win mag for a few reasons. ballistics tables suggest that a 190-210 grain bullet will still be going faster than 1800 FPS at 700-800 yards, providing sufficient velocity for the bullet to expand and enough energy for a clean kill with a well placed shot. I also like the availability of the Federal GMM 190 grain at 2900 FPS while I am working up a good long range hunting load. I also think shooting a 300 win mag is more affordable than a 300 RUM with less recoil. Any thoughts? The Remington 700 SPS Long Range looks like a great option. I think it is brand new this year. Does anyone have any experience with this gun? It seems to be much like the SPS varmint in magnum calibers. What would I have to do with this rifle to get it to shoot well? What other recommendations do you recommend in this price range?
