Bang for Your Buck: Top 5 Long Range Calibers
For such a high-end and specialized hobby, you’d be surprised by how much agreement there is about the “best” rounds for long-distance shooting. That is, if money is no object. And of course it is.
That’s why we’ve configured our list around calibers that are excellent for distance shooting but also useful for hunting and/or widely available. This is why you won’t see the .338 Lapua, .50 BMG, or the .416 Barret on this list.
There are lots of excellent choices that are nearly always available at your local sporting goods store. And for our money, at least, we feel confident that our shooting skills will be the greatest limiting factor, not the size or diameter of our ammunition.
