Check out Surgeon Rifles, Pierce Engineering, and Badger Ordance. These are two manufactures of machined billet recievers and other long range parts for 1000+ yard target rifles. Also go to the NCPPRC web site and join their forum. Ask these guys what they use and suggest. NCPPRC is a 1000+ yard shooting club here in Nor-Cal and they compete on a regular basis. It's a small club of 100 people (non members are welcome) and they can be very helpful in guiding you the right way in building a 1000 yard target rifle.

Default .300 winner

The .300 win mag will not let you down it definitely will have the power over the 7mm although it may not shoot as flat. The 300 will take the deer, elk, moose, black bear hell you could even take a grizzly with the good shot and right load. Although the 300 has a bit of a kick a 30-06 is a good second option, i am definitely a fan of the 30-06 it would also take any game in north america plus shoot past 800 yards on a target, as far as accuracy goes i normally make a 500 yard bulls-eye with my stevens 30-06 (stevens is a economy version of Savage).

There is a reason why you don't see to many belted mags on the line at a ling range match. They just arn't as accurate and non belted cartridges. I have seen a few that were accurate but the last one needed two guys to get it from the car to the bench. It weighed clost to 45# it was a 300 AI which was a 300 meatherby mag with the double radius blown out to a 37* shoulder and the neck was shortened. This thing would log a 200gr 30 cal SMK down range at a rate of 3300 fps. The barrel was glued into a 18" long alum bedding block and the action was free floating.
