The practice of placing a bullet into the vital area of an animal standing a quarter-mile away requires good gear and proper training. Even if you're a crack-shot hunter, you'll have a hard time if your rifle isn't up to snuff. A rock-solid platform, in a configuration that will maximize your own abilities is a must-have. Here's a look at some of the new long-range hunting rifles for 2018.

Well, that's a mouthful. However, it's also a healthy handful of features that will help a rifleman connect from one hillside to the next. A McMillan Game Scout Stock – in A-TACS AU camo – holds an X-Bolt Cerakoted action and 26-inch barrel with muzzle brake. That stock features a palm swell on the near-vertical, textured pistol grip, and an extra sling stud for bipod attachment. Available in 6mm Creedmoor, 6.5 Creedmoor, .26 Nosler, 7mm Remington Magnum, .28 Nosler, .300 WSM and .300 Winchester Magnum. MSRP $2,129.99-$2,199.99

The Savage name has long been a synonym for accuracy, and the addition of the AccuFit Stock will only make an already great rifle better. The 110 Long Range Hunter – with the famous Savage floating bolt head that will correct so many ammunition inconsistencies – can now be customized for both length of pull and comb height, allowing a shooter to take full advantage of the high-magnification scopes that seem to be growing in size. Equipped with a 26-inch barrel with muzzle brake, the 110 Long Range Hunter is available in some cool calibers, including 6mm Creedmoor, 6.5 Creedmoor, .260 Remington, 6.5-284 Norma (love it!), .280 Ackley Improved, 7mm Remington Magnum, .308 Winchester, .300 WSM and .300 Winchester Magnum. MSRP $1,099 .338 Lapua MSRP $1,299
