    26" barrel, (28" with muzzle break) 4.5 - 14 X 44 Zeiss rapidZ 800 scope.

    I have shot this thing 1000 yards before (NOT at an animal.):facepalm:

    I shoot (and reload) 200gr all copper Barnes LRX bullets. 117.5 gr of powder.

    Note my homemade shooting/work bench!

    Here is a bullet that I recovered at 900 yards...
    It hit about 6 inches left of where I was aiming.

    This bullet was recovered after a 707 yard shot...

    Ammo for that .30-378 is $130 a box.:eek:

    That's $6.50 a bullet people, reloading is a must for that rifle.

    Reloading is really not that hard once you get it figured out. The hard part is dropping $800 on all the equipment, calipers, powder scale, and a chronograph.

    Start saving your brass now if you think you will be reloading some day...

    I spent around $3000.00 between that rifle, the scope, and the reloading equipment.

    That's pretty impressive considering the bullet drop at 1200 yards is about 35 feet!

    You can reload quaility ammo for a fraction of $800.00. You can certainly spend that (and prolly will) but not necessary. What are you burning in that cannon, IMR 7828?

    It is "manufactured to U.S. military specifications," whatever that means... People reload for .50cal's with it too...

    Yeah its definitely not easy but on that 7 ultra the bullet drop isn't too bad. At 500 yards it only drops 11 inches

    Recoil on the Browning with BOSS is surprisingly light.
