You should be able to do 1,000 yard shots with it if it has a 1x7 or 1x8 twist with 77 grain match bullets. I'm planning on buying my wife a Stag Arms Super Varmin with a 24 inch barrel so we can shoot some prairie dog in SD this year God willing.

It has a 1x9 RH twist. Thats cool i was told 500 to 600 yards would be about its limit. On UTube i seen some shooting 1600+ long range thats nuts. Thanks for the reply
