Default Long-Range rifle setup's

I thought a thread dedicated to showing off your long-range rifles would help everyone like myself who would like to have one someday. Post pictures, specs, calibers, whatever and let the drool start flowing!

Alright y'all. I was really hoping to see some actual setups from folks who like to challenge themselves with distance shots. One day I would like to do the same.

Maybe you could be more specific? Long range for 5.6 is short range for .50. Here's some LR eye candy:

Then there's this:

slightly older pic

fn scar17s

7.62x51nato 1-12 twist 16.5" cold hammer forged chrome lined barrel 168grain smk sub moa when im not yanking the trigger like a goon. even though that pic has the tr24g on top i typically run a nightforce nxs compact 2.5-10x32 moar reticle 1/4 moa clicks. adm qd mount

handl defense lower allows use of pmags. gieselle super scar trigger approx 3.5 pounds pull. magpul selector bcm gunfight grip vltor mod stock. vltor handguards soon to be replaced with the new MI keymod handguards. oem sights removed and replaced with magpul mbus poly sights for weight savings and retention of open sights if needed. pws compensator replaced with bcm 7.62 compensator

this rifle serves me as either cqb or long range dmr. the semi auto action allows extremely quick follow ups if needed and the 20 round capacity allows for maximal firepower at range.

first round hits with a bolt gun might happen but reality is semi auto dominates on rapid target engagement and the accuracy of the scar17 is sufficient to hang with any 308 bolt bolt gun.
