Taking sort of a survey on this.... Having been a member here for years, I've read up on all the long range shots some of you have been making. Many of you use a pretty significant amount of gear to stretch it out....tripods, Kestrels, exbal, ang-cos indicators, levels, Leicas rf, etc. For various reasons, including the inability to actually hunt anything but coyotes with a rifle here and limited opportunity to shoot past 400 yards, I've remained academic on most of it with the exception of 300+ yd kills on whitetails with my ML. So this year I have a Montana elk trip and "may" have the opportunity to shoot far (the shots presented will determine that). With everything I need I can't afford the full range of gear to have a complete long range setup, I need to leave some things out. I am interested what each of you would consider your effective range with a setup like mine rather than what you have: - Rem700 Sendero 300WM - factory all the way (a notebook full of 0.5 MOA groups at all ranges) -Nikon Tactical scope (4.5-16X I believe) -200gr Accubonds with a 3000 fps MV -scope level -Bushnell 1500 ARC (800-850 yds reliably, 900-950 with a few tries at nearby objects) -Harris bipod Wildcard - exbal on a Palm is a possibility though without a windmeter I feel the value is lessened, the altitude compensation is a known factor I can control for without it. The rangefinder gives the angle and I can carry a cosine table for that. So no windmeter or tripod setup allowed... Assume ample practice at whatever ranges you want to shoot. I'll withhold my plans until some comments come in.
