I only have one that I consider a real long range hunting rifle, and another that gets pressed into that role from time to time:

Win Model 70 "Coyote" .300 WSM, "controlled round push feed" action, with a Jewell trigger, laminated stock, 24" stainless barrel, 20 MOA Badger base, and set up here with a 4.5-14x Leupold. It's one heck of a rifle, I just don't use it much. Hanging onto it, because when I do use it, I grin a lot.
Image

Image

Most accurate load I've built for it is a 210 gr Berger VLD at 2810 fps via H4350:
Image

And the other is the rifle I've shot more than any other center fire rifle, probably more than all the rest of my center-fire rifles combined. Have been through several .308 barrels over the past 20 years. Rem 700 short action, .308 Win, 24" Krieger barrel, chambered with the '95 Palma reamer, 1:12 twist. This one has done triple duty as a target rifle, SWAT rifle and hunting rifle. Really like it, just a tad heavy for me, for general purpose hunting. But dang, it's rewarding:

The "Green Machine" while practicing for NRA prone competition. McMillan stock.

Back in the original HS Precision stock, on a mule deer hunt here in Washington, couple of years ago:

So, lets see your "long range hunting" rifles! I know there are some out there...

Regards, Guy

I figured the big one was a .300 Ultra Mag! (y)

Wasn't sure about the .260 Rem... Sweet cartridge from what everyone tells me.

My 308 was feeling left out so I'll throw it up here too. At 16 pounds I doubt it will see any field time, unless I carry it on the 4 wheeler or dedicate a pack horse just for it!

Lung powered, various caliber, stubby tactical straw, true 1x optics, inherently silenced.

Image

Only thing I do not like about it is the very low BC and lack of knockdown power at extended ranges.

Sorry... I couldn't stop myself. We were taking about mini weapons at work and spit wad came up.

JD338 - that walnut stocked M48 is drop dead gorgeous! What a rifle. (y)

All - these are cool rifles! Every one of them. I think it reveals the deep interest in rifle accuracy present among members of this forum, Nosler enthusiasts...

Don't have pics of the rifle but here's what it does at 500 - that's 4 shots inside of the business card I'm holding up against the target.

Image

Rifle is a stock Weatherby Vanguard S2 243 24" barrel and some 90 gr AB's cooking downrange at 3175 fps.

I have a first-year Remington 700 in 25-06 that's gone out to 700 on targets and nearly 600 on a hill-country whitetail before. That's an old Fajen maple stock on it. Shot the best 200 yard group of my life with this rifle and 100 gr speers - .25"

Image

Working on a 264 WM. with 142 AB's. Hoping to stretch it a bit this weekend. If I do, I'll get some pics of that one as well.

I gave my 6 yo grandson my old 600 Remington. I've taken deer to 300 with it. Here's what the reloads will do:

Here are my LR rifles.

From L to R, 7mmRUM (150ET), 300RUM (200AB), 338RUM (250AB), 375RUM (260AB):
I am considering a thumbhole stock for the 338RUM though, dang thing kicks like a large mule, needs a little more weight to it, plus the XCR stock is not much for eye candy.
