If you want any chance of being able to make first shot hits at that range...you're gonna need a lot of gun...

338 Lapua or 338 EDGE loaded with big Berger bullets (300 grain, BC of .818)...with those, maybe...MAYBE....you could reliably hit within a foot of where you were aiming, IF you make at least a decent wind call.


No 30-06, 300 WM, 300 WSM, or even 300 Ultra is gonna be that easy in the wind...some of the big 7mm's are good, but even they don't compare to those big 338 bullets.

Theres a reason true long range hunters use those big 338's...because they make a 6-700 yard shot pretty easy...with a BC that high, the average wind doesn't really become a problem until after 800 yards.
