Good 308 bullets

Im wondering what kind of bullets would be good for hunting to max 600 yards?

I understand it would take high bc bullet, so the wind wont play havoc on it, and some decent speed? Do you prefer light or heavy bullets in 308?

Im planning to go with only one practice/hunting bullet, and one varmint bullet. So I can buy large quantaties, and easier to reload. So any suggestions?

    If your reloading then: 155 AMAX @2900+fps kills everything

    If you want to purchase loaded ammo then go with Winchester BST's 150gr. or Federal premium 150 Nosler partition or ballistic tip. Most anything will work fairly good if you can put it in the right spot. PRACTICE, no your exact dope before you go hunting.

    I havnt bought the rifle yet, but Im considering buying the one with a 20" barrel. The other one has a 24". I like the shorter better, because of the handeling. But Im conserned about the 155grain A-max wont get enough speed of that short barrel.

    155, 168, 178 AMAX are good 308/600 yard bullets for deer size game. Accubonds are also getting a good rep at 600 yards but lack the BC the AMAX's offer. I get .474 from the 155 AMAX in my 308. WIth a longer bbl and slower twist I imagine it would be closer to .500 in the real world.

    I never knew which bullet God shoots. I always thought he shot a 640 KV Lightening bullet out of a custom "bolt" gun


    Oh yeah, does he ever miss?

    This bullet will be used against elk, moose, pigs and whatnot.. I have been reading that hittin bone with a A-max might not kill it. I doubt i will shoot a moose at 5-600 yards, but its nice to know that it would penetrate the bone, and kill it.

    I have been thinking about the Ballistic tips..dont know if they are better at long ranges.
