I guess seeing as how everybody is posting a report. I am generally an archery hunter, but bear hunt with a rifle. My only long range kill was a Coyote at 515 yards. I though this was pretty good considering that I just shoot a 30-06 with a standard 3-9 leupold on it. I have practiced out to 550 with it and am pretty consistent at 500 and under. I manage to miss 1 elk at 20 yards (she jumped the string) and got into alot of really nice bulls. I did 10 ring a fall tom at 62 yards with a bow. I will be posting a good long range report next year (if my rifle ever comes in). I ordered a Sako TRG 42 in 338LM but the wait list is forever at my local gunshop. If you ever want any info on hunting Black Bears in oregon feel free to drop me a line.
