Re: 308 Win Long Range Hunting Loads
I shoot the Hybrid 168 also. I hunt with Savageshtr. I have a load in my 18" barrel using Power Pro 2000MR. It produces .5" at 100yds with an avg speed of 2571fps. I hit a doe running this year and the Berger worked good. I highly suggest this bullet for the .308 as you can push it hard enough to be effective to 850yds for deer. As far as steel and paper, just shoot it and test your skills as far as you think you can handle.
