First post on this site, so please bare with me if my questions has been asked before. I have been looking at building a long range hunting rifle. Nothing fancy just something to get into the sport. However this week I was given the opportunity to purchase a custom built 280 rem. This rifle would normally sell for around $ 3000.00 but I can get it for much much cheaper. My questions is what kind of performance can I expect out of 280 rem? Would this gun be something I can harvest deer and elk out to 800 yards with cleanly. I know it is all about practice practice and knowing your gun. I would just like some input on the caliber performance from the experts. Thanks for your input.
