I have a remington 700 AAC-SD .308.
I love the gun, added a muzzle brake and a timney trigger and get dime sized groups at 100 yards and not much bigger at 200. I have only had it for about a year, but so far furthest shot has been a 2 liter at 500 yards.

I just looked internet highest of quality parts and it's insane how expensive some of the parts are. I think this build may take a few years eek

Not a slam, but some honest questions. How much long range shooting do you do or have you done? What is the longest range you have shot? How much reloading experience do you have?

A dime or Quarter sized group at 1000 is an exception not a rule. Most rifles and most ammo loads are not mechanically consistent enough to do that on a regular basis. Then throw the human element, and nature in there between the shooter and the target and it is a lot of variables to overcome.

Just don't want you to get your expectations into the realm of the unrealistic and end up wildly disappointed after putting a lot of money and time into a build. Most folks would be ecstatic to get consistent half minute groups at 1000 yds which ends up being right around 5 inches. If a rifle, optic, ammo and shooter combo can do that regularly, that is world class shooting.

1" is MOA at 100 yards, 10"+ is MOA at 1000 yards. Expecting to shoot 10 rounds, which is what a group consists of in a 1" area at 1000 yards is not feasible. 12" for a beginner would be quite amazing. Hitting the paper would be good! You would need to handload ammo, expect to spend lots of $$$ on ammo. Your rifle and optics will need to be very high quality, no super sniper 10x is going to work.
