What do you call long range?

In 2019 there are better options than 7mm Rem Mag for long range target shooting. For the guys that want to take elk at 1000 yards they shoot bullets with enough bullet weight for that. But for punching holes in paper there are several options that will still remain supersonic to a mile with 1/2 the recoil and cost of a 7mag.

If I wanted the most accuracy for the dollar I'd buy a Tikka CTR in 308, 6.5 CM or 260. The 308 will get you to 800-1000 yards, the 260 or 6.5 out to a mile. Street price is about $900 in blue, $1000 in SS.
