600 Yard's .30-06

Just picked up this one the other day. Take a look.
Going out on Sunday to see if it's as good as I was told. So what do you guy's think can I take her out to 600 yard's. Going to shot some old Western Super X 180 GR. Silvertip's

Winchester 670 .30-06

Holland's Muzzle Brake

Leupold 3.5x10 50mm Golden Ring Scope

Roch Mount Bi-pod 9"-13"

Limbsaver Slip On Recoil Pad

Uncle Mike's sling

Ok the reason it has both a brake and a pad is because I am a wuss I got wiplash along time ago and the recoil from my 7mm mag. brings it back every time. So this thing should shot like a .22 well maybe not that soft but I can hope. Thx for looking any input would be greatly appreciated.

I have written elsewhere that most hunting rifles are capable of long-range shooting; however, the limiting factor is often how adjustable and/or repeatable the scope is. Your scope does not have target/tactical-style knobs, so making the elevation adjustments needed will be less convenient than if you had them.

Depending on your particular rifle, you that load should require approx 13-14.5 MOA additional elevation to get to 600 yards from a 100-yard zero.

Thx Zak, I got it good to go at 100yd's 3/4 inch 3 shot group.
But it did'nt do so good at 200 about 2 1/2 inch three shot groups so I did'nt try any further than that, after all it is a hunting rifle.
