I shoot a mark Bansner UR-1 in 7mm STW with a lilja 26" barrel, have shot groups in the .2's on a few occasions. I would like to extend my Range to 600-700 yds with this setup. My longest kill is 487 yds. Am I asking to much of this setup?

NO, not at all, just practice and you will be there in no time, you didn't say what scope you have, that could make it easier or harder.

I have been using the STW way before it was called STW. My longest 826 yds .With 150 bal tip and 7828 powder. We have killed at 711,700,735,575,475,475,699. "take him" is usaully the last word before the shot.
My rifles are built by Clarence Hammonds Red lion ,PA. p.s we missed one at 1075 this year, but that buck was not as lucky on the next shot!

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
