Re: One mile + rifle

Alan, I think you have missed the point... Sorry about that. I saw the 8mm max in your first post and went off half-cocked. If its open slather on calibre then 50 cals seem to be the best performers for accuracy at ultra-long range, but very expensive to run. Thats ok Alan , I did ask the question ...

One mile + rifle

Gday everyone,

I'm looking at having a riflep built to shoot out to one mile +

What is everyone using and what are the results ?

Two options need to be considered ,
Number one ,8mm and under
Number two , unlimited caliber

Any thoughts on build specs wouldn't go astray either ,
