Looking for a good long range gun for big game hunting (trying to go west) and maybe to hunt deer with in Kentucky. Currently have a Ruger 270 and 300 ultra mag. Don't care much for the 300 ultra mag. Hunting in KY I have multiple stands I can shoot 400-500 yards from, longest shot for a deer I have taken has been 314 yards. I did find a new place I can see for 1200 yards but would never take a shot that far. Also looking for a new varmint rifle. Been leaning towards a 22-250, but my buddy at the gun store is advising me to just use an AR. Recommendations are much appreciated!
