Maybe all these long range hunters we're getting lately need to look into these....better not to arm these people with anything "real"
my boy would kick another kids butt for a nerf rifle like this

I was a deprived child...I never had Nerf
I got a stick and some dirt and I was HAPPY with it. Kids these days with their internet and their game-stations and zoo-zop pets and what not.
To quote my father and grandfather who enstilled the same values in us.

I feel the BAR in a magnum would put you easily in the 400 yard range with some good handloads and a lot of practice, no problem. And you should be able to beat that price you mentioned by a lot. I picked this one up very cheap a little while back. It's a 1970 BAR Grade II in 7mm Mag.



One more option you may want to look at, altho it will limit your range a bit is a Remmy 750 in 35 Whelen. It's a heck of a round for elk out to 350 yards if you can shoot, heh heh!




Here's three shots at 100 yards using factory Remington ammo with mine and it's a carbine. I've always prefered an auto over a bolt gun when hunting. But I agree with the others 550 plus yards is pushing it to the extreem.

I like the BAR you have. I like the BARs a lot, but have never actually seen one in a magnum load, most of them I see are in the 308win or 30-06. If I want an auto-loader in that caliber I think I'd go with a Springer M1A. I think the more cost effective way would be to get a BAR and make a custom cheek-weld if I need it, course I'll be mounting the scope as low as I can. I not too sure if I would be realisticly be willing to shell out that much for an R1 unless I actually got to get my hands on one and see the features for myself, its sort of my pet-peeves.

Perhaps with the money I would have left over with a BARs lower cost I could just get a better scope and good ammo loading materials and practice. Because the 338win mag's ballistics have a big gravity pull on me right now.
