The BAR is not a typical action used for long range shooting, not at least if you care that you hit what your shooting at.
Thats a bullshit statement! I got a BAR 7MM and its a tackdriver! It's not made to shoot 300+ yards it's a hunting rifle! not a target rifle. I shoots very well for a auto. If you want a auto to target shoot with go with a AR10 My BAR is good up to 300 yards easy. It's a older model I got a Leupold mk3 on it. Nice rig just a little heavy.
Sorry guys but the origional post said long range targets. That would be something well beyond 300 yds. Suddenly you develope a need for heavy bullets, which the BAR might not stabilize well. Out at 400+ yds, the world changes. If you have one that shoots well at long range targets, count yourself lucky. Give some 160gr match bullets a try and see how you do with them at 500yds.
Like most of you I'm certain, I love to shoot my guns. I enjoy shot after shot all day long at the shooting range… whether it is with one of my Shotguns, one of my rifles, or with my handgun… or when the crosshairs are on a big game animal in a safe shooting scenario. I love to shoot! What I don’t have the same excitement about is cleaning my gun afterwards.Now this is not going to be gun cleaning 101 as every kit comes with its own set of directions and the internet also has a great deal...
