OK, so you want extreme long range? and a humane kill, and some of the meat pre-shredded? Send a 300 grain .338 LM pill out there to, say, 1,500 yards and watch DRT happen. Ruger's magnum version of its RPR is now available and for around $1,600 to $1,700. street price. And that is a very good deal for an accurate rifle in this cartridge with all the RPR extras. So would you take this 16 lb. (bare rifle) hunting? Likely not unless your were mounted in a vehicle or on a horse. And even then a dismounted stalk would require a gun bearer - or two. BTW, The one "extra" I prefer in my own 6.5 Creedmoor RPR is the in-line recoil with the M-16 style bolt-into-stock alignment. It (and the brake) helps me keep the recoil managed so I can see my hits and misses. So have at it extreme long range shooters, here is new artillery. Be sure you have at least 25 power scopes. Maybe Bushnell's 4.5 - 30 x 50 XRS II would be more appropriate. And hopefully Applied Ballistics has some info in their engine for this cartridge. Eric B.
