Here is a selection of some of the best long range hunting rifles to help you reach out and bag that trophy of a lifetime.

Nosler M48 Long Range Carbon Bolt Action Centerfire Rifle

The Nosler Model 48 Long Range Carbon includes all of the same features that made the Model 48 Long Range a success with the addition of a PROOF Research, carbon fiber wrapped, match-grade barrel.  By combining precision machining with space-age materials technology, the PROOF barrel reduces the overall weight of the rifle while providing the utmost accuracy and durability. PROOF’s carbon fiber-wrapped barrels are not only lighter, they are stiffer, and dissipate heat better than traditional stainless barrels for enhanced accuracy, shot after shot. The Manners MCS-T Elite Tac 100% Carbon Fiber stock specifically made for the Nosler M48 action to provide weight savings and increase comfort.  The stock has a high cheek piece for the large bell scopes helping provide the best cheek rest contact and neck relief for prone shooting, and a forend and palm swell featuring a molded texture surface for sure grip when standing for a shot.  Weather resistant and pillar bedded for the best durability and precision in the field when it’s needed most. Precisely mated to a trued and faced Model 48 receiver and bedded in a Manners MCS-carbon fiber stock, the PROOF barrel brings space-age technology to your next hunting rifle. The Model 48 LR-Carbon is an excellent choice for mountain hunting, backcountry excursions, and long range competition. Born in the wide-open expanses of the west, the Model 48 Long Range Carbon is perfect for any situation where ranges may be long, and weight is a concern.

Buy it!!!!!!

I bought one of these in 2018. A friend recommended it and said I would love it. I've hunted for 35 years and never thought I could kill an elk at 583 yards with one shot, but I did. I shoot targets at 850 yards - 1100 yards. The gun is simply amazing and well worth the money. M48 Long Range carbon in 300 WM shooting 180 AB Nosler, Leupold vx6HD 3X18X50 firedot Duplex and AP muzzle brake. Listen, I dont usually write reviews nor get to much into the tech of shooting. I just wanted to have a light weight long range gun for big game hunting. The price point (compared to others) and the accuracy was exactly what I was looking for, I couldnt be happier.

Bergara Premier Stalker Bolt Action Centerfire Rifle

The Premier Series is as close to custom as it gets, but with standardized features for greater efficiencies in parts production and assembly.  The Premier Series Stalker Rifle features a Premium 416 stainless steel Bergara barrel, which receives a proprietary honing process at their barrel-making facility, and then continues through another four stages of production to produce the most accurate production barrel possible.  Upon completion, the barrel receives a Cerakote finish and is coupled with the Bergara PREMIER action, all of which is completed at their facility in Lawrenceville, GA USA.

The Bergara Premier Stalker Rifle is one of the all-around best hunting rifles on the market!  The Rifle features a custom engineered full carbon fiber stock, built by a group of craftsmen who cut their teeth in the aerospace industry. The stock is extremely lightweight, rigid, and durable.  Its one-piece construction is the key to its superiority over other carbon fiber stocks, most of which are made of two molded halves that are bonded together.  This type of attention to detail and quality creates a rifle that is ready for any environment!

The Stalker Rifle uses the Bergara Premier Action.  This action is designed as a two-lug system that features a separate floating bolt head to ensure contact with the lug abutments in the action.  It also features a cone-shaped bolt nose for smooth feeding of the cartridge, and a spring-loaded sliding plate extractor located in the front of the lower locking lug. The one-piece bolt body is stainless steel with a pad at the rear to accept the threaded-in bolt handle. The bolt shroud and bolt stop are fully Nitrided for extreme durability, as well as its self-lubricating properties. The bolt handle is finished in Cerakote for the utmost protection. The two-position safety is part of the trigger assembly, which in the Stalker rifle is a TriggerTech trigger with Frictionless Release Technology. One great feature of this combination allows the bolt handle not to lock in the closed position, which in turn allows the rifle to be unloaded while in the safe position.  The Stalker comes standard with a hinged floor plate, and offers two barrel lengths, a 22” Bergara Barrels on Short Action Calibers, and a 24” Bergara Barrel on Long Action Calibers

Weatherby Mark V Accumark Stainless Bolt Action Centerfire Rifle

The Weatherby Mark V rifles are proudly made by skilled craftsmen, who provide the exceptional quality and attention to detail you expect from such a legendary name. Mark V rifles all come with a SUB-MOA accuracy guarantee. Handlapped barrels ensure that the bullet’s flight path will be true and consistent and when combined with the enhanced shooter experience of the Mark V, it is the best rifle you will ever purchase. Now, no matter which Weatherby rifle you choose, whether it’s an Ultra Lightweight for sheep hunting in Alaska or an Accumark for whitetails in Texas, you can trust every shot will be right on the money - guaranteed.


The Mark V stocks have been ergonomically enhanced with a slimmer forearm and sharper, more distinctive lines and contours. The grip diameter has been reduced, a slight right-hand palm swell has been added and overall weight reduced. The lighter weight results in increased comfort, control, quicker to the shoulder mounting, and faster target acquisition. The Mark V trigger has always been outstanding, and now it is even better with the introduction of the LXX Trigger. The engagement surfaces are precision ground and polished. Overall tolerances refined. A new, wider trigger face increases trigger-to-finger contact, all for a more consistent and comfortable pull. Adjustable down to 2.5 lbs., the Weatherby LXX Trigger will amaze you with every single round fired.


The Mark V is built to handle the pounding of powerful magnum loads. However, for those hunters who prefer non-magnum calibers, these are provided with the Mark V standard 6-Lug action, accommodating up to .30-06 length cartridges including the .240 Wby. Mag. Utilizing the same one-piece forged receiver design, the standard 6-Lug action is dimensionally smaller and weighs 28% less than its magnum 9-Lug counterpart providing lighter overall weight without sacrificing an ounce of strength or structural integrity.

Exceeds expectations

Purchased from a local dealer. 84M Open County in .308 Winchester model. Not the same rifle, but same action and product line. Picked it up on impulse for use as a deer rifle. I handload, but the warranty is voided if hand loaded ammo, So I got a box of Federal 168 Matchkings for my first range trip. Very impressed! 1st 3 shots to sight, next 3 for group. The group printed 5/8 inch. Next worked up some deer hunting loads with 165 Grand Slams and power pro 2000 MR. A nice mild load at 2710 FPS, Sd 7 printed 0.45 inches. Well built, comfortable feeling rifle that even in the heavier Open Country version is not too heavy. The Optifade is nice and has a unique and nice feel about it. The barrel looks almost hand lapped under the bore scope and cleans smooth a quick. Only a couple cons: (1) the length of pull is a little short for me and I'm an average size guy. (2) for hand loaders the magazine box could be 1/4 inch longer to allow flexibility in bullet seat depth changes for sleek bullets like lon...
