I'm interested in shooting beyond 1000yd. I think it would be cool as shit to regularly shoot beyond a mile.
I want to avoid meme-caliber guns (6.5, 6.7) and I can't afford to shoot 500 rounds of.338 Lapua or .416 Barrett every month.
I want a solid, dependable, non-fudd rifle in .300 Win Mag or .50 BMG for less than $8000.
What optic should I use? I have a hard time understanding the Nightforce and Leupold websites, although I am interested in the Vortex Razor 2 from what I've heard.
Also, extreme-long range thread go.
>wants to shoot "long range"
>doesn't want a 6.5mm "meme caliber"
>would instead like 300wm (for 1 mile shots) or .50BMG
At least you mentioned Razor HD Gen 2
This is a troll thread, so here is your reply I guess.
I honestly don't know why the Snipershide and leddit long range guys love creedmoor so fucking much.
>.300 WM and .50 BMG because not reloading and the cost per round is less than 6.5, .338, .416 and .408
I was going to say otherwise go for a Frogrifle by PGM but they mostly make stuff in .308/.338/.50 and they tend to be slightly more expensive than 8 grands. Maybe a second hand PGM Hecate II would fit the bill for you?
There's a nice variety of high BC bullets available
Brass can be made from .308 and any number of .308 parent case brass
Doesn't take much powder
Reasonable barrel life
I am not sure what your disdain for the caliber stems from.
Hold on there it is
And you want to shoot out to 1000 yards or "a mile"
Lol definitely a troll thread.
Outside of the United States, it isn't.
In the US, if you have a fair bit of time and money on your hands and also reload already or willing to get a setup for it then sure, it's a fine option.
Otherwise not much available in terms of rifles, good factory loads etc. A more practical choice in the US would be 6.5CM or .260
>hurr hurr wanna mosin
6.5 isn't really an option unless reloading, same with .338 lapua, and .408/.416 is really expensive.
.308 isn't reliable past 800 yards, OP wants to shoot beyond 1000, which is the domain of 6.5, .300, .338, .408, .416, and .50.
6.5, .338, .408, and .416 have been ruled out due to availability, cost, and the necessity of reloading
If you want to shoot long distances you have to get into reloading, and really when you buy a $8000 rifle set up for long distance shooting, a reloading set up's cost pales in comparison.
