Kicking around a dedicated heavy rifle for long range hunting in western Colorado. The 7 Saum shooting 180 bergers is very interesting to me and I would love to seat them out as far as possible. I think that is going to cause me some heartburn for mag length and since this will be a 700 yard or a bit further rifle, I am just trying to figure out if I really need a repeater. Setups include setting up over oak brush filled canyons and shooting across with minimal hiking around. Say you ran an A5 heavy fill, heavy taper 28" barrel, would you feel really handicapped for long range hunting with a single shot rig? My longest range hunting to date has been with a lightweight 6.5-06 going slightly over 500 yards a few times. Looking to extend that by a bit. Thank you for your feedback.
