Best Answer

This would be one of those questions with a thousand answers, because it has to do with many things. Do you want to hunt, target shoot, do you want heavy recoil, or a light nudge, do you want to reload, or buy factory ammunition. There are many rifles that are the best long range rifle for many different people. There's also the budget issue. The Varmint Hunter Association would have you in a heavy barrelled, 22-250 or something similar. The longest range kill of a person in combat was done with a $10,000 .50 caliber rifle made by the McMillan Brothers. Two very different rifles but well-suited for the task at hand.

What is the best long range target rifle for a beginner?

If you are beginning, I would start with less than long range- a good 22LR target rifle at 100 yards. The skills you learn there will carry over to very long range shooting. Once you have mastered that, the next step will depend on what you call long range. To some people, that is 300 yards- to others, 1200 yards. 5.56 mm ARs, .6mm and .308 bolt rifles are popular choices. Please do NOT start with a .50 BMG or .338 Lapua.
