If I were you, I'd look into a .308 win.. Its an uber common round with tons of different bullet variations, and lots of ballistic info. I however, shoot a .270, I like the flat/fast ballistics, and it's just a fun round in general. The choice of factory long range ammo is kinda slim though. Good luck to ya with whatever you decide.

don't let these guys scare you, the 300 win mag is a fantastic long range rifle and if you have lots of 3006 time you wont have any problem with the 300 recoil. and nothing you can see will be safe either. have fun

I'll go with the 300 rum available with the remington 700. with it you can go to different power levels that I think are commercially available. Level 1 is comparable to a 30-06, level 2 is comparable to the 300 win mag and level 3 is full power. I have a friend who has one one and it was easy to reload to a level 2 which I found pleasant to shoot. I imagine a 180 gr. pill at 3400fps might just reach a 1000 yd target.

For targets any round can be used for long range shooting. The old .45-70 was used for 1,000 yrd. matches for years. If your talking about hunt that a hole other ball game and I don`t think anyone should be shooting a big game at 1,000 yrds. I have a .22-6mm that I built for a long range coyote gun and it shoots flatter than any factory round but in the 25 yrds. between 625 and 650 the bullet will drop 6 in. with the loads I am currently useing. That boils down to if I`m off 25 yrds. on my range estimation, I miss. I have shot a 2 in group at 600 yrds. with the gun over the hood of my pick-up and have total faith in it, as long as I can get them ranged.

Thanks again guys for all the help. I bought a rifle yesterday, which i think will be great for what i want it for. It is not a Remington 700 like i said i was looking at buying, but it is a Brno ZKK 601 chambered in 6.5x284. The rifle is pretty much custom built with all the usual good gear like jewel trigger, big stainless barrel with target crown the action is blueprinted and is fitted with a 6-24x50 Barska scope. When i pick the rifle up i will post some pics and let you guys know how it goes at the range.

Sounds like you got yourself a nice stick there. 6.5 x 284 is a really accurate round, with some tuning on the reloading bench I would be willing to bet you will be posting some outstanding groups.

Look forward to seeing your pics.

For informal long-range target shooting and serious hunting in your part of the world I would choose the Rem 7mm mag. It's recoil duplicates the -06 but the trajectory is better. The only scope cut I ever got was from a .300 Win., my fault, but it does have more recoil than is needed for most game hunting anywhere.

Both cartridges tend to be accurate and ammo is usually available, at least over here.

The .308 is a great game and target round too but the others beat it at long ranges.
