I am looking for a good long range deer hunting gun and am choosing between a 30-06 winchester which is what i have been hunting with, a 300 or a 308. If a 300 or 308 which producing company is the most reliable
sorry John Deere, but you are approaching unethical hunting practices. what is the furthest you have ever shot at accurately? do you fully realize how far 800 yrds is? it's pretty dang far!Probably a bolt and would like to reach around 800 yds
Thanks i am now convinced to go with the 300kalboy26 said:I would recommend a 300wsm, as that is what I use and love it. it is extremely flat shooting though, and can really reach out there. A buddy that I used to shoot with(until he recently moved) was out to 1000 yards consistent on a 12 in steel plate. I've only gotten mine out to 700, but I'm limited past that by my scope and me, not the round.
That is cheap and also one of the best ways to spend money so i would be willing to spend over $500.robocop10mm said:You best plan on putting $200-$300 worth of ammo down range at that pie plate before trying it on bambi. Such a shot is not easy, with any caliber.
At least that is encouraging. Practice, practice, practice. Too many these days think a bunch of bling and $ signs guarantee an accurate shot. Few of them can hit the broad side of a barn, from inside the barn.That is cheap and also one of the best ways to spend money so i would be willing to spend over $500.
Alright i will for sure take a look at the 300 wsmkalboy26 said:Take a look at the 300 wsm as well, some don't like it as much, but its a bit flatter shooting which I really like as I don't always have time to use a range finder to get my yardage and everything worked out.
I meant can't go wrong.Hawkeye3030 said:I have win 300 mag. It is accurate up 1000 yds+. I can shoot it up to 200 yds with no drop whatsoever. It is a bolt action rifle with a very sweet trigger. I put a muzzle break on it to save my shoulder from the massage therapist. You can go wrong. Check your Kmart. They are closing out their rifle ammo at half price.
