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.
Hunting can be slow and frustrating if Mother Nature throws a warm hunting season at you. But things can take a drastic turn for the better with the onset of a cold snap. Whether you get snow or just a good, prolonged cold front, the hunting can improve on a dime. But cold whether can also make certain parts of the hunt more tedious. Here are some things to keep in mind when your prayers for cold weather finally pay off.
You can see a your quarry's breath when it is cold outside...
