Well the topic pretty much says it. Also want to know the max effective range on an 18" and so forth.

What's your gauge of effectiveness?
A hole in a piece of paper? (what size paper?)
A certain level of energy? (what level?)
A bullet that kills what you are shooting at? (what are you shoting at?)

So many variables with no specifics to work from.

I would say the cartridge is effective to somewhere between 50 and 800yds depending on your requirements.

Combination of distance target shooting and future hunting rifle.

To follow up on what Randall said, what kind of game? Varmints? Deer?

Also what kind of target shooting? Matches? Hi power? Or casual plinking? Tiny groups on paper? Steel plates?

Specifics change what you might want.

My response of 50-800 still stands.
Without more specific info, no specific answer can be given.
His response of "targets and game" is even more vague than my 50-800 distance.

If his game were moose, I would tell him to put the AR away and get a real gun.
If his game were prairie dogs, I would tell him to get a laser rangefinder.
