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.
