My long range rifle **VIDEO**

Long Range rifle for up to 1200 yards. - YouTube

This is my .308 rifle which I have taken out to 1200 yards with hand loaded ammo (SMK 175gn with a muzzle velocity of 2715fps) with 1/4MOA accuracy after barrel break in time. A very cost effective rifle made by Remington (model 700, VLS), and a scope that I can pass from rifle to rifle for a lifetime (premier heritage 3-15x tactical).

Only a rifle stock modification was made. 1/4 moa accuracy was obtained by PRACTICE and an amazing piece of glass.

2,900$ for the scope
700$ for the rifle
205$ for scope rings (DONT GO CHEAP ON THESE!!)
150$ for scope base (DONT GO CHEAP ON THESE!!)
130$ for the Bipods
45$ for the Cheek Piece
= 4,130USD$ All but 745$ of it you can pass on to your next rifle for a lifetime of shooting. Buy American, buy it once, buy it for life.

Not a sponsored video.

The good:
- Easy to maintain
- Parts readily available
- Tons of .308 load data
- INEXPENSIVE (rifle)
- "light" recoil (rifle weighs 14lbs)

The bad:
- Coating doesn't prevent rust very well. I get light rust on this rifle when others don't. Kroil takes care of it though.
- No box fed magazine (but you can buy one from Badger).

No ad, just setup of my rifle. After the 1st I will have shooting footage on that rifle, but I cant take my camera to my range.

Where are you shooting 1200 yards? Shoreline is a long way away from a distance range. Makes putting in the time to keep 1/4" groups at that distance rather difficult. Getting those groups at 300 with a stock rifle riding on wood is tuff. I'm not a distance shooter but pushing a.308 to 3/4 a mile and making those claims with that setup.....you must be Harry fucking Potter because that's fucking magic.

I am not sponsored, not looking for one. I do video production full time which means I have a good amount between projects to do what I love. I own land over the mountains and have shooting locations in the mountains which reach out past 1000.

Also, in the video you never hear me claim I make 3" groups at 1200.

ahh. I see.

see, for me, making videos of that production level would be difficult.

my bad.


so, if you don't mind me asking...what kind of groups are you getting at 1200 yards? just how big is 1/4" of angle at 1200 yards? (I'm not doing math this early in the day)

I kind of have the same questions too.

1/4 MOA is generally accepted to be 1/4" at 100 yards (sometimes referred to as SMOA of "Shooters Minute of Arc") so at 1200 yards this would equate to roughly 3". That's a real feat for a .308 because one needs to consider that a 175 gr bullet with a BC of .505 traveling 2715 drops over 32 feet in 1,000 yards. Most Ballistic calculators stop at 1,000 yards so I can't say exactly what the drop at 1200 yards would be but the drop at 1,000 yards is over twice that at 700 yards. Once the bullet goes below supersonic it's no longer accurate by anyone's imagination. With even a wind speed of only 5 mph which is pretty much the norm, the drift can be 4 feet one way or another.

If one is shooting at a 4x8 sheet of plywood or an oil barrel they might hit it after a few "ranging shots" but with a .308 most hits would be considered lucky shots at 1200 yards.

The only thing I feel that the "good glass" is doing is letting the shooter see the target. From there on it's nature and luck, especially with a .308 round at that distance.

Yes, I sure would be interested in what size groups. Either fantastic marksmanship or --------------

If I can take my 1/4 moa group and battle the wind and rotation forces out to 1200 I would be looking at 3 inch groups. This is in fact a harry potter situation but some guys have done it. I am not sure of my groups at that distance but I can hit steel human sized torsos

My apologies.....I was referring to your first post in this thread where you stated you were shooting at 1200 yards with 1/4moa after barrel break in. That's 3" at 1200 yards, Which I would like to see. That's amazing accuracy that I've never heard of from a 700 that hasn't been worked over.

I see your asking for people to send you stuff to review. What are your qualifications for reviewing equipment? Are you a competitive shooter? Do you have military experience? Did you build rifles for someone? I just want to make sure that before I base any purchases or opinions on any review, I want to know the reviewer isn't some now-out-of-work blockbuster employee who's parents paid for a video camera and some acreage. With the claims you made in your post you're either a very talented shooter who got extremely lucky buying an extremely accurate example of a stock remington 700 or you're completely full of crap.

I am not a sniper or claim to be one. My love for firearms got rekindled a year ago, and I met a someone who is now a very good friend (former marine) who refined my shooting and helped me choose equipment, so this video is actually based on his knowledge he passed onto me.

Competition ruined downhill mountain biking for me so I doubt I will shoot long range competitions. It turns a hobby into work (for me) and it loses its excitement.

And to note, if it wasn't clear the big part of the accuracy is the ammo. All handloads with re-swaged bullets and weighed cases that have been turned.

Why? Match grade bullets already as good as it gets.


Wait-
Does anyone else smell the "fertilizer"?

Sierra bullets when running full tilt are made from 5 different machines making the same bullets, and this process takes away the differences.

Maybe that's why I use Nosler Custom Competition bullets. In my rifle they shoot better and Nosler claims to use dedicated machines for each bullet size.
