    Snowy Mountain Rifles. It’s a full custom rifle but I asked them to work up the drop data with over the counter ammo. I can pretty much find 180 gr 300 win mag ammo anywhere.
    I go to the Mountains to loose my mind and find my soul.

    Good groups out to 600 yds, which is the longest local range I have.

    The only rifle I have now that I'd shoot at game much over 400 yards with is a 280 Rem. It sports a 24" #5 contour Brux barrel with a 1 in 9 twist. Trued Rem 700 action, Timmney trigger, McMillian stock, EGW bases and rings, Vortex 4x16x44 Viper HSLR. For Moose I'd find a 160+ pill to shoot.

    I've gained enough confidence with the dial for distance turret scope, have set up two more rifles with dial for distance turret scopes recently. One on a factory Tikka T3 in 270 Win, the other on a 25-06 set up similar to the 280, bit different brands, but a twin in looks except for the #3 contour Kreiger barrel and scope/bases/rings. The 270 is easily Moose capable with the right bullet. My 25-06 has taken elk well, but is not my first choice.

    I shoot pretty good groups out to 500 yards with my A-bolt II 300 WSM. (150 gr Silvertips)

    400 yards is about my maximum range. Any further than that and I will get closer. Its not that I cant shoot that far accuratley, its just personal preference.

    I guess I never wanted anything that bad to take a long shot.

    I have killed a lot of woodchucks out to 600 yards with my 22-250. But I put those little turds into a different "respect catagory"...lol

    agreed, .340 Wby w/ 225 TTSX, the box says 3100fps.

    Think it also depends how big of game and how far...

    I'm asking about something for taking big game (elk or even moose) at 500 yards or more.

    I shoot what Bone collector shoots. My scope is a vx7l. The Browning is a stainless Stalker with a brake and the BOSS system. The BC of 617 sure helps in windy conditions. The scope is too much, I wish I had gone with the vx3, however with the vx7 I can be the first to shoot in the morning or last to shoot in the evening. The scope power is 4.5x18x56 Leopold. I have a z5 Swarovski that is much lighter but the Leopold is head and shoulders better for long range. The gun, the boss system and bullet makes it very accurate to six hundred, my limit.
