What do you guys think a the 340 for long range? Is the cartridge able to be accurate out to 1000k in a good rifle? I want a rifle that I can walk around with so it will weigh around 10lbs with a scope and have no brake on it.
Know you don,t like brakes. I have a 340 built on rem. 700 action #2 lilla with brake. Gun by its self is 6 lbs and shoots 1/2 with 200gr. hornady or nosler about the same with 215 sierra. Great to carry and have killed elk and deer to 500 yrds.Thanks again for the input. I dont like brakes so I will just tuff it out.
Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen
The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
