Anyone do any long range shooting (500-1000yrd+ shots)? my buddy is getting into it and the more I watch him shoot at comps and get to play with his Rem 700 chambered in 338, the more I want to grab one to tinker with. Thinking more of the Rem 700 in a .308 instead though.

.308 is more repeatable and predictable ballistics wise. If I were to build another it'd be in .338 lapua. I sold my Mcree precision. .308 because although fun long range shooting is a really expensive hobby. Good glass would have costed more than I had in my gun! Farthest was 350 yards keeping it on a sheet of paper with a 10x scope. My eye sight is awful BTW.
Now I'm ar all the way. I'm feeling a long range one being built rather soon though just to put my 10x on something.

I did it for about a year. Then I got bored of it. It did help greatly with my hunting style shooting though.
