Hi /k/.

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.

>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.

Have you looked for .408 Cheytac?
>>
>>27542867
>not trolling

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
>>
>>27542882
Yes.
Not terribly thrilled with the direction Cheytac has gone recently, and I have a hard time finding M300s anywhere other than ridiculously overpriced armslist.

>>27542935
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?
>>
>>27542922
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

Flat trajectory

etc.

I am not sure what your disdain for the caliber stems from.

Hold on there it is
>not reloading

And you want to shoot out to 1000 yards or "a mile"

Lol definitely a troll thread.

I guess get some ww2 surplus gun that you can get modern ammo for, like a Mosin or something.

>>27542843
Why is 6.5 Swedish a meme caliber?
>>
>>27543043
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

>>27542993
>PGM

Very nice. I'll look into it, thanks.
>>
>>27543023
>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.
