    I think that these two will reach out and touch something at 1000-yds plus. Sako TRG-S on the left and M75 on the right.

    TRG-S: .300 Win Mag, 2-lbs factory trigger, Sako scope mount, Leupold Vari-X III 3.5X10.
    M75: .300 Win Mag, 2-lbs factory trigger, Leupold mount, Zeiss Conquest 4X12.

    Very Nice! I wanted one but I just dont have the $$ to mess with them lol. Love them but honestly the scopes cost as much as I have to spend on a entire gun :)

    We (family) have more long range stuff than handguns and short fighting weapons... Lots of Rem 700's from .220 Swifts to .375 Cheytec... Those are the two extremes, most are in the 6.5 - .308 diameters...

    For really long range, nothing like a Sako TRG. I prefer the 7MM STW to any of the 30 Cals. The 7MM seems to shoot flatter to/past 1000 yds and bucks the cross winds better. The old (pre-bankruptcy) Redfield Golden 5-Star 4X12AO target works well.

    Nothing like a couple of Com-Bloc 7.62 NATO rifles for medium range sniping like a 308-1 Saiga with 6X POSP or SSG-97 with 8X POSP.

    This particular long range whackin' stick is an 80's era Remington 700 BDL "Heavy Varmint" in .308. Leupold VXIII's varmint reticle is surprisingly accurate out to 500 yards. Beyond that, I have to use them funny dials.

    I believe mine is officially "medium" range. But, here it is anyway:
