And think about getting a smaller gun (223, 222, 204 ect.) for the closer shots.
I like what the above poster says.......
You can get a Tc Venture, Ruger American, or some sort of Savage in .223 and shoot less expensive, less of a barrel burning round, and be good to 300 yds with the accuracy provided by those rifles. I would then re-barrel your current gun in .243 or some other 6mm variant for the longer shots. I know that costs more money by having 2 rigs initially, but I think it would save you money over the long run. As you could also switch guns out as you like when barrels get super hot.
