    I feel as confident with my 30-378 Weatherby at 1000 yards as any dressed up sniper rifle I have seen. I paid $1000 for her a few years back, used. Manufactured in 2001, MacMillan Stock, bedded, trigger scary light; I luv the gun. Have dropped caribou way off with this gun. I do believe I could shut my eyes and still hit the target with her.

    I'm loading 100 grains RL-22 180 Barnes tipped X with 215's. I have friends loading 109 grains RL-22 with 168 grain Barnes and they are leaving the barrel around 3700; dang that's fast.

    Bottomline, you got to get a gun you believe in more than anything.

    I would have to go with the Remington 700 300 ultra mag.I have never shot it at 1000 yards.but using 175 gr Berger bullet with 98.2 grains of Retumbo I know what it can do at 600 yards. The only thing that has been done to it is the trigger has been lighten a little.
