this in my opinion is the problem with internet chatting about this stuff.
some guy is gonna say wow look at that. i have a 308 i can kill with at
1000yds or more.
and the fact is he dosent unless he's good at head shots.
on another site recently a guy was shooting at gallon jugs filled with water.
reason being he likes seeing things blow up. his 308 168 gr smk not only didnt
blow up the jug at 800 yds. it never even exited the jug.
please try some of those type test also and publish that information.
