It's hard to say, really. I personally define long range as weapons that are of 30" range or better.

I personally would rate Codex Marines (that is, Ultramarines, Imperial Fists, Raven Guard, Crimson Fists, White Scars, Salamanders and all the Chapters contained in Codex Space Marines) first, with the Black Templars clearly at the bottom because of their Kill Them All!
rule. This isn't to say the the Templars have bad
shooting, it's just that it isn't as good as that of most other Chapters. Space Wolves probably have better shooting than both the Blood Angels and Dark Angels, too. Hmmm...
I guess I'd rate them as follows:
Really though, there isn't a ton of difference between most of the Chapters. The only really noticeable gap is that between the Codex Marines and Black Templars, really.
