What is the best long range deer rifle/long range target rifle be? Brand and Cartridge?

DCA has it right with the 7mm Mag being a wonderful choice for a long range weapon (I assume you mean the 7mm Remington Mag in a Ruger Model 77 rifle). Biggest thing you are going to run into is that the best long range shooting rifle isn't always the best rifle for hunting. The 7 Mag does both jobs admirably, up to... More

* The vast Majority of Big & Small Game is Harvested within 100 yards or less.* Actually you already have a Rifle capable of making long shots, so i don't see how you can improve on that by getting any other one that is going to outperform what you already have.* There isn't any Rifle that will reach out any further or...

I think it would be the 308 or 300 win mag they are both sniper rounds and they both have lots of down range energy to go threw body armor and light armor.

30/06 its very powerful and hard for the bullet to soar in the wind because it's cartridge is so big and powerful.

I use a savage .243. I can hit a water bottle at 200 yards with a half bad scope. Here is a link to the gun.

I enjoy shooting my .300 Win Mag with hotter-than-factory hand loads out of my Mossberg 4X4 and my Kimber. A 500 yard shot, accuratly made is no issue.

Everyone needs at least one good Mosin-Nagant they are still relatively inexpensive, 7.62x54r ammo is realively cheap too and it can easily do what you want it too, just get one that is in good shape and has a decent bore. Look at the Finnish ones

Hunting is about getting as close to your target as possible and then crawling 50 yards closer. Shooting game at extreme range is not ethical in my opinion... More

I would go with the Browning A Bolt in a .270 Win Short Mag

You said best. It ain't cheap, but there's not many guns with a moa guarantee at 1000 yards. Only available in 300 win mag. or even better, this one in 338 lapua.
Answered By: travis s - 3/12/2009
Every sniper in the world pretty much uses .308 caliber weapons. They can easily kill at 1000 yards with the right shooter and gun. Some other popular sniper rounds are the 300 win mag and 338 lapua.
