Post up your long range sticks! ;)

My current hunting rifle is a Rem 700 LA, 280 Ackley shooting the 168 Berger VLD's at 2940.
Rock Creek 1:8.7 twist finished at 24". M24 contour with 6 heavy flutes.
Seekins Precision muzzle brake
Remington Pre X-mark trigger tuned to 3 lbs
Seekins 20MOA base, Seekins 30mm rings
Seekins Recoil Lug
HS Precision PSS stock skim bedded
Factory BDL bottom metal (really sucks during competition but this gun does double duty for me).
Viper PST FFP Mil/mil 6-24x50 scope
Harris Bipod
Weight with bipod is 12.5 lbs on the dot!

Here's how she shoots...
Would've been better without the 5 mph wind that day. That caliper was zero'd at .284 so outside to outside is actual group size.

First deer shot with it... 666 yards.

Best 3 shot 100 yard group to date. Think it was .13MOA or something like that...

Rifle build by Travis at RBROS
7 Rem Mag
700 action blueprinted
26" rockcreek varmint contour
nightforce base/TPS rings
jewell hvr trigger
Manner t2 stock
leupold vx-3 4.5-14 with target turret, varmint reticle.
I have shot it out to 1072 but I need practice and not confident yet. 650 is easy though as long as the wind is resonable. It shoots the 180 bergers at 3060 fps. Best group so far is .307.

That rogue is impressive. I have seen his test targets and his numbers are pretty amazing as well. When I have to rebarrel its going to be a tough choice on what I want to go with.

Rem 700, 300Win Mag. Action Blue Printed, lugs laped, bolt face trued up (the usual stuff). Stock is an H.S. Precision, that had to be skim bedded. Stock trigger worked over. Was told it was 2.1 lbs, and NO CREEP AT ALL, and a clean break. Leupold 4.5x14x50, Tally rings. Hand loads are Fed brass, with Burger 190gr, and 72gr of H4831sc. Will be getting Kreger barrel after the season. Best 5 shot group is in the picture. Greater than 0.5, less than 0.75 MOA (, but averages less than 0.75 MOA. My kid broke my calipers, sorry. Not bad for a factory barrel though.

Had to do this one too, its my new build. Long range for a black (hunting) rifle. ARP 6.8 upper, with a 18 in barrel, and a MI SS hand guard. Sits in a Megga upper that has been trued, and barrel has been bedded. RRA lower with a Geissle 3 gun triger, and a Magpul ACS stock. Handloads are SSA brass, Hornady 120gr SST bullets, 27.5 gr AA2200, and CCI 41 primers. Have not worked all the bugs out yet, but shoots sub MOA, and holds that out to 300 yards. Would shot it farther but, this is a hunting rig first, and that is where I am going to stop for the season. Will play with it more after the season closes. Hogs just dont stand a chance!!!!!!!!!!
