    I realize some of these aren't going to be true long range rifles (including my own), but let's see pictures of your "long range" rifle(s)!!!! Also, what's the longest shot you've taken (or attempted), hunting, plinking, or otherwise.

    I took a picture of my friend hunting while I was standing about 300 yards away. Is that what you meant by long range rifle pictures?

    Zam, I think you are in for a rough ride. There is so much BS and juvenile fantasy foolishness regarding "long range" rifles that a lot of folks simply can't resist poking a bit of fun.

    Moreover, long range riflery is 10% gun and 90% rifleman. In that sense, a "long range" rifle is whatever is in the hands of a competent "long range" marksman, perhaps barring such things as .30-30 lever guns. Simply slapping a heavy barrel and a kielbasa-sized scope onto a stock action doesn't really mean a whole lot.

    Good luck with the thread, anyway...

    Mauser 98 over a hundred years, and still copied today. .308 winchester. I don't feel like typing everything that I have into it, Ill just say I have more in it that I could ever get back. It gives me pleasure though. If I feed it quality handloads or premium factory ammo. It responds with a boom . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . TANGGGGG[​IMG][/IMG]

    This will have to do for now. I'm gonna see if my Dad can get a couple pictures of her with the jewelry on. This is the picture from the guy I bought it from off gunbroker. Now she wears an old 7x weaver my late Uncle gave to me. With the Norma ammo she shoots 1" groups at 200yrds. Not bad for an old junker. Newer picture to come.

    Pedersoli 1874 Sharps, .45-70 with a vernier sight. I've only shot it out to 300 meters, but I hope to make it to some 500 meter silhouette matches this summer.

    There may be better calibers than 308 Winchester for long range, but it works.

    You don't need an expensive gun and custom mods to play the long range game. My Savage 10FP cost under $600 and the scope was around $500. My gun, out of the box, has a 3 pound trigger and shoots 3/4" at 100 yards in my hands with Federal Gold Medal Match 168 grain 308 Winchester ammo. A better shooter could probably get 1/2 MOA.

    I don't even want to know what these cost to get an 11" group at 1 mile:

    I suspect the half the value on those tables is worth more than my 401K.

    Yeah, this was from their Long Range Hunting course. Every one of those guns was able to get center hits on steel at 1,000 yards, assuming the spotter was doing his job. Considering we had FOUR USMC 8541's training us as spotters and shooters, EVERYONE made solid hits on steel from 100-1,000 yards.

    In case you missed it, 18"w x 24"h steel looks like this at 1,000 yards:

    The man shaped steel targets were at 200 and 300 yards.

    I'd agree to a point, but so much of long distance shooting is the shooters capability and experience with that particular gun. When my dad was in nam there were guys with kills at 1200 yards using a 308, not bad for .68 miles with a moving target...

    I think a lot of the confusion on long range guns has been pushed into the categories of competition small target grouping versus "killing your target" groupings.

    Haven't tried it past 300yds yet, but....

    DPMS LRT-308 SASS with a Leupold MK4 3.5-10X:

    IMG_4857.jpg

    I've shot 1.5" groups at 200yds with cheap Walmart Federal Soft points. Can't wait to get it to a longer range with some match ammo.

    this is just something i threw together for fun. fn columbian mauser action, finned 7mm-08 barrel from a madsen light machine gun & a home built stock. i still have to finish the stock & paint it then add a scope & mounts. the stock will be painted the same metallic blue as the action.
