Yes you are right. I know for a fact that w the long barrel on it that my warbird will reach that far w little problem. I shot it the other day at 850 yards and was hittin center of mass with no problems. In fact my 200 yard zero w the mil dots was dead on two down two right. So of cost of a build is no matter and your gonna reload id build a rigle off a good stock, mauser action, and a heavy match krieger barrel. Then slap a damn good high mag scope on her.

God didnt make all men equal colonel Sam Colt did

Hands down, 260 Remington. The 140 gr. bullets have a very high ballistic coefficient and will be stable out to over 1400yds. The .308 175 will stay stable out to a max of maybe 1200yds. You also have less recoil. Great caliber for what you are planning to do.

Why not just go w/ the original. 6.5x55? 1400 Yards for a .260 (6.5-.308) Never happen. 6.5x.284 has a better chance. It has 300fps w/ a 140gr advantage. Still not a 1400 yard cartridge.

my favorite, the 6.5mm-06 A-Square. very good ballistics. this is the one i chose for my target rifle. on a side note, the caliber is only one aspect of an accurate rifle. barrel quality, action, trigger, ect. ect., all play into the performance of shooting accurately at long distances. caliber choice is important, but not the only factor in play.

1903A3 Springfield bolt action rifles in 30-06 were shooting at 700-800 yards in WWI and WWII. so even the old 30-06 in the right barrel and rifle could have the potential to shoot accurately at 1000 plus yards.
