I just got a letter in the mail from the R&R ranch in CO. It states all the gear necessary to bring and mentions that a recommended weight of 150-165gr bullet will be ideal for long range shots. No reccomended calliber. I was going to load 180 partition or 200accubond, but should I consider stepping down to 165 partition?

I'd go with the 200gr Accubond and never look back. Take some 240gr SMK's and really blow their mind.

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

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
