    Am considering putting back in the Hightec stock, giving it a better scope and keeping it for a gong shooter

    350-400m in the right hands with the right load man. Smoke stuff sweet out to 300 odd with factory ammo. You hunting bush or tops?

    My own personal limit is around 400yds depending on circumstances (too many variables to bother explaining)and that limit(ish) is not cartridge/calibre dependent.
    this rifle will comfortably kill deer at that distance.

    Start a thread with exactly that query, asking for feedback from the 7mm08 latte mob and the 6.5 Creampuff crew, but they may feel intimidated by the .308 Gangsters, and not reply, cause .308 makes a bigger hole than them............

    The stock gets sold if the rifle goes, and stays if I keep the rifle for a gong gun (and hunting) was going to put it up at $300, but would let it go with the rifle at $200 ( that is super cheap for a light, rigid, and bedded Hightec stock) Might not show well in the pic, fore end is a beavertail for bipod and sandbag shooting, it's really good over a pack.
