Hi, I'm new to this site, new to extreme range[imo] shooting but exceptionally hooked already. I have often seen huge deer at 800 yards in Alberta, Canada that always seemed unattainable to me until I stumbled across 'The best in the West.net's promo video' I will admit right off that I do not have the knowledge that most of you have here on this board. I also realize that the gun combo is merely a piece of the requirement to enable me to humanely, yet accurately, take game at such ranges. I have seen how a 165gr 7mm will carry more energy to greater distances than my beloved 300Win through sites shared on this one. I realize that there are many combinations that work well for many of the members here and I certainly do not want to start a thread where members take aim at other members. So, Here's my question: If you were to build a new long range weapon today, what would it be and why? I am looking for specifics as far as barrel twist, manu, length etc as well as all the other myriad of options for the rest of the system is concerned. Weight is not a huge factor in this construction, yet under 11lbs is a target. Post a reply with your dream gun and the reasons supporting/suggesting it and I will truly be grateful. Sorry about the long-winded post. Cheers, Jim PS: May the new CDN Gov put bill C-68 to it's long overdue rest.
