I finally had my first true "long range" rifle built. I have been shooting coyotes for 15 plus years now and have always shot .243 win. in a varietey of rifles. I have killed hundreds of dogs with my longest recorded kill at 749 yards lazered. I finally broke down and sent a Rem. 700 action to Benchmark Barrels in Arlington Washington. Here are my specs on my new stick Remington 700 LA Blue Printed 27" 8 twist Light Palma Contour barrel fluted Chambered and throated for a 6-284 Norma and 105gr Berger VLD Replaced J-lock and firing pin Shilen Trigger tuned to 20 OZ Grey Bull Precision stock bedded Badger 20 MOA rail burris extreme rings Leupold VX3 4.5x14 AO with M1 turrets My hopes are for this rifle to be a 1000 yard lazer beam for coyotes. I will eventually hunt pronghorn, mule deer and possibly whitetail (bowhunter at heart) with it. My question here is, Am i going in the right direction here??? What can i expect from this rifle as far as distance?? ( all my rifles, Tikka, Savage and Remingtons i have been able to develope handloads and shoot them all 3/4-1/2" so I can do my part with the trigger) I am hoping to find a load with Retumbo, H1000, or H4350 and ii have no clue what primers i am going to use. SO all you Veterans out there please help out a rookie.
