Hi guys. I'm just starting to look into this long range shooting. I've owned a Remington model 700 7mm STW for about 12 years now that is all factory except for I've had the trigger adjusted down to about 3 1/2 pounds and up until this point I've always had a good friend reload for me. Im not sure on the powder he used but I've been using 160 grain Nosler partitions without a problem on deer and elk out to about 450 yards. He recently passed away so now I'm looking at getting into reloading for myself. My main hunting consists of deer and elk in Idaho and I'd love to be able to shoot out at 800 to 1000 yards. I know I will have to upgrade my current vari-x 2 30-49 Leupold but I'm not sure where else to begin. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated!
