Thread: Best long range calibre

  1. #1

    Best long range calibre

    I personally have a 7x284 which I think is better than 6.5x284.

    Huh? 7mm IS 0.284"

    Yup, but the guys are necking up 6.5-284 brass to get back to a straight .284 Win. Apparently the US made .284 brass isn't good enough for serious long range work, but the Lapua stuff is.

    their both good but 7mm barrels last longer and the heavy 7mm bullets come into their own past 900yds but 6.5 is verry hard to beat sub 900yds
    stick to lap brass

    Depends on what you consider lang range? For paper targets or meat?

    a big 30 cal how about a 30-338 lap mag i will building one for a customer .750 bc 230grn flying at over 3100fps ,and has some crazy accuracy
    or a 338 lap but it will be hard to get your ground cleared for 338 for deer and the recoil is intense with 300grn bullets
    so a big 30 is the next best thing as 30 cal will clear on most stalking ground

    Think this is a hypothetical question anyway.


    Whatever calibre your proficient in using will do the job, providing you can read the wind and measure distance accurately and know your drop exactly and have stable firing point and are an adept marksman etc etc etc


    How about a 20mm Vulcan or 30mm Rardon?
