Ok Guys, Im looking at my next rifle and Ive been bitten by the long range bug, by that I mean 800 to 1200 yard range. Any of yous guys work out regularly at that range with your FN SPR's? With the 1 in 12, 20" barrels I can find many references out 300 yards, but not so much in the 1000 range.

I have shot mine out to 1000 with great success. I have to use a 175 smk or 178 amax to get there accurately. I have also heard great things about the 155 lapua scenars being able to make it out that far. I however have the 24 inch barrel not the 20 so im not sure how that lack of velocity will effect your bullet down that far.

I have the 20" A5m and have only shot 168 FGMM out to 1000. Was not able to hit my 8" steel target, but did have a decent group right around it though. I have shot mine more at 600 and it does great at that range with 168's. I need to pick up some 155 Scenars and 175 gr smk's one of these days and go back to my 1000 yard spot this spring.
