so I have a stock savage 116 300 win mag. I am curious as to the distance that this rifle is able to reach. I personally have not pushed it further than 350 yards. But yesterday I saw the largest black tail buck that I have ever encountered and I am very familiar with large deer. Any way this monster was about 900 yards I closed the distance to 550 and then some yahoos started shooting over me trying to reach the buck to no avail. As I watched this magnificent animal disappear into the trees and the knuckelheads get back in their truck and drive off. I couldn't help but wonder if I should start practicing at 500 plus yards with this rifle. Does any one have any input on the range for this rifle.
