    300 Win Mag for Long Range?

    Is the 300 Win mag good for a long range shooter? This will probably be for target shooting only, just want some thoughts. Thanks.

    Seems like 7mm and 300 wm are the calipers of choice for long range.

    Heck yeah it's fine for targets. Even better for a LR hunting rig. If for only target shooting, you don't need the recoil of the 300 for good performance. If I was to build a target only rifle right now, I'd go with a 6 or 6.5mm of some sort. Targets only, in a heavy rig, 6mm SLR. Targets and hunting up to deer sized game, 260 Rem.

    Go to JBM and run some calculations on the 6 and 6.5s, you might be surprised. They are tough to beat. Low recoil, lots of reloading components, great performance, short action, lots of reloading data available, lots of match components available, and I'll say it a second time, low recoil.

    6.5's are taking over the LR target/tactical comps.

    As an addition to my previous post on this subject, my Browning A Bolt 300 Win Mag has the BOSS system (Ballistics Optimizing Shooting System) Installed. Without it the recoil is very heavy but with the BOSS it doesn't have as much felt recoil than my 30 06. My youngest daughter would rather shoot the 300 than the 06.
