- Nicest part of hell
My suggestion: if you are planning on going big for regular 1000yds+ target shootings, start reloading your own ammunition. You will be instantly more accurate, ammunition scarcity will be a problem of the past and it will be 30-50% cheaper which is HUGE with the big calibers. 300 PRC cases will be readily available over the internet and heavy 308 bullets are incredibly abundant.300 PRC would be awesome, but unfortunately I haven't seen that ammo on any of the shelves at the local outdoor retailers. I've seen a lot of 300 PRC rifles on display for sale, but the ammo has essentially been non-existant. I have found boxes of the ammo online (which is a good thing). But I wish the ammo was locally available a little more often. For my use and ammo availability (locally) 300 Win Mag seems to be the better choice. We'll see what happens within the next few months after I finish taking care of a few things for my Evo 9. I really like the ballistics and cost per round for the 300 PRC especially when compared to 338 Lapua.
Trust me, everyone I know who got into reloading wish they had started much earlier and I'd say 95% of those who shoot long range make their own ammunition. And its very easy.
Then you can also very easily shoot calibers which are very exotic, like the 7mmPRC which is a .300PRC necked down to 7mm. And 7mm bullets have insanely high BC's, below the .338 calibers there is nothing better for long range than big 7mm's,
