I agree. I have learned from reading everyones posts is at those long ranges, a softer, more streamlined bullet is needed to get out there and touch them. I use sciroccos and barnes tsx 150s in my 308 win, but I am shooting less than 200 yards and I feel more comfortable with having weight retention. I have been shooting a lot to extend my effective range and once I get there, I will be using vlds.
Thanks to everyone for the great info and experiences past on to newbies like me.
