My goal is to work my way into 3 1000yd + rifles for target/coyote/whitetail/mule deer. The 300 win mag and 30-06 are both Win Model 70 classic stainless w/boss. 300 has been bedded, 30-06 has not. I have been using the following in each rifle. 300 win mag w/leopold VXIII 4.5-14x 165gr Sierra Game King (moly coated) IMR4350 - 75.5gr - 3190fps Fed match grade primers Remington cartridges This rifle produces: 100yds - .750" 200yds - 2.50" 300yds - 5.00" 400yds - 8.50" 30-06 w/B&L Elite 4200 6-24x 165gr Sierra Game King (moly coated) H414 - 59.0gr - 2900fps Fed match grade primers Remington Cartridges This rifle produces: 100yds - .750" 200yds - 2.75" 300yds - 3.75" 400yds - 12"+ 243 Ackley is a rifle I just got and have only shot it once. It was built on a rem 700 action with a heavy fluted barrel. Composite stock w/aluminum/glass bed. Scope - older Lyman perma-center 20x I have used 107gr Sierra Match King did not have my crony the day I shot it but it did produce an occasional group of .5" at 100yds. Other groups up to 1.50" (bench rest) Can you guy's recommend if I am looking in the wrong direction or do I have something I can work with? I am purchasing a leica 1200yd range finder (recommend?) and will be able to shoot up to and over 1000yds. I have all of the reloading equipment I believe I need to do it, now I need some good direction and patience on my wife's part. The cartriges are cleaned, sized, flash holes chamfered, ready to prime and load. Any help is GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!!!!
