I've done some searching and found some information but some of it seems dated so I was hoping you guys could help me decide on what cartridge to go with. I'm going to rebarrel my Savage Stealth (short action) and plan to use it for long range. I have regularly shot 308s on steel at 1k so I am not totally new to long range but this is strictly shooting with friends not competition. I shoot mainly off a Harris bipod and rear bag either prone or bench. We are planning to take a few trips to a place where we will have access to about 1 mile. I load all of my rifle ammo so factory ammo is not a concern. So the question is for long range plinking fun what is going to be the best cartridge in a short action. I was considering 7 saum but also looking at the 6.5 PRC. Just to clarify I know nothing in this setup will be the ideal 1 mile gun. I'm just asking if I'm rebarrelling anyway what is the best short action long range. It will normally be used for slow fire plinking at 1k but an occasional trip to even longer range is a possibility that's why I mentioned it.
