it's a good round but 1000 yrds is a bit of a push. all you can do is try. weapon you are using is a good candidate.
how fortunate for governments, that the people do not think!In the past quarter century, we exposed biases against other races and called it racism, and we exposed biases against women and called it sexism. Biases against men we call humor.â€”Warren FarrellCanada: What Britain would become if it got fat and had its' nuts cut off.Obummer says I can has freeberty!

Yeah, I need some help too. I've got an STL (Marti 15C) down. The Motorola MHW812A3 rf amp is almost impossible to come by and very expensive. Will the Motorola MHW806A3 at half the power (6 watts) be able to reach out about 20 miles?
You're welcome. The .30-06 is the greatest 100 year old cartridge design on earth. The 8mm Mauser came along in 1905 and I liked it and handloaded for it too, in the old M98 rifles it was as accurate as anything, and threw a little bigger bullet, .311 vs .308 with the same stability in a slightly better action than the 1903-A3 and 1917 Enfield rifles (IMO, of course). A light bullet in the Mauser was my ground hog round until I could afford the first .25-06 I had on a Winchester model 70 action.
This will be out of a CZ550 American with a Millett 4-16x50 scope.
Never took a shot beyond 500 yards yet, so I'm looking for some recommendations.
3006 with modern powders rivals a 300 win mag, or at least gets close. id look into the sierra 200 gr match kings, or even the very low drag 220 gr. as for powder, a slower burner liker rl15 would work well...depends on berrel length too. of course use fireformed cases and match primers. id seat just shy of the lands, though depending your mag may inhibit this.
few other things to consider...is the scope of sufficient quality? does it have sifficient elevation, are the rings up to the task? are you busting targets or just shooting paper? oh...there is a nice 155gr smk with a ballistic coefficient as high as the 175 gr out there...a high speed flatshooting load u might dig.
any experience with fire adjustment with a spotter? you will need one.
