Started getting into the longer range shooting at targets out to 1000 and 1500 yards, and very rarely, but occasionally groundhog not quite as far. I like both of the calibers I will be asking about, and plan on having a custom gun built on a Remington 700 action later. For now however, I have been looking at the savage long range hunter in 6.5-284 and .338 lapua. My questions for all of you would be, have any of you handled one of these rifles before? Is it a good rifle choice for the cost? Which caliber would be best suited for long range accuracy? If you guys can, some pros and cons of each caliber.
