What would you choose? Just curious as to your thoughts.

Is this a long range project. If so I would stick with the 308 for 1000 yards an closer. 1000 to 2000 yards I would go with a 338 lapua!! Anything out past 2000 yards I would go with a 50bmg, 416 an the granddaddy of them all the 408 chey tect.

I would probably choose a cheytach intervention with the electric scope that tells you every calculation

depends on too many variables. hunting or targets? what distances? what level of accuracy is a person trying to achieve?

hunting you would need energy at the longer distances for a clean kill. this usually means larger and heavier bullets. for target shooting it only needs to hit the target and energy isn't as critical.

distance is a huge factor. long distance hunting, i would say to limit your longest shot to the distance you can hit accurately at, each time you pull the trigger, whether that be 300 yards or 600 yards. targets again are not animals, so a miss is just a miss and is not a big deal. but a miss on an animal could mean crippled or wounded animal that you mght not find, which IMO is unethical and unacceptable.

level of accuracy depends on whether you are hunting, shooting for bragging rights or trying to win a match. for hunting, refer to the last paragraph. that again covers accuracy for hunting as well. for target shooting, it depends on whether you are shooting and wanting to hit a man sized target at 2000 yards, or trying to achieve a one hole ragged group at a 1000 yards in competition.

cartridges. there are many cartridges that are accurate at long distances. some can be gentle to shoot all day, and some can leave your shoulder sore after a few shots.

Sean: that looks very much like the Rifle In 338 Lapua that my Friend has.....I have seen his Hits on an outdoor Long range, engaging targets at 800, 1000, and 1200 Yards....

yeah it is a beautiful piece of work. I shot an older model AI in 338 LM in Iraq when testing firearms for the Squad Designated Marksmen program and let me tell you 1,000 meter shots with this thing are a cakewalk damn near any rifleman is able to pick this thing up and at least hit a man size target at 800 meters with absolutely no training, but Uncle Sugar determined it was too much gun for the SDM program.

Is this also about an ar15? Most accurate for what needs. Is there a weight limit or class rules?

Txhillbilly 12-07-2013 02:50 PM

I'll just stick with all the rifle's that I have as well as the one I'm building.
They are all as accurate as I need them to be,or at whatever range I'm shooting them at.

If you can't shoot excellent at 300 yards,you have no need in trying to shoot further until you can!
