Just finished this rifle, and it will be used out to 1,400 yds. for wide open country deer hunting - Cartridge is based on a maximized 280 case, necked up to .30 caliber - New case / formed case / fire-formed case I have yet to pick out a specific bullet for long-range deer, so I thought I would ask you guys for your preference. Shooting distance will be out 1,400 yards. Initial testing shows 180 gr. bullets exceeding 3,000 fps. if that helps any, and twist rate is 1-10".
