Re: How far will a 308 kill?
for Elk, I'd go a maximum of 400 yards, depending on bullet weight and Muzzle velocity. That's about the max I've seen for getting 1500ft/lb of energy. For deer, assuming good accuracy, 600 is the max I'd shoot, for me that's because velocity goes under 1800fps after that, and for my Bergers, I want them going at least that fast for good expansion. of course differing temp, humidity and air pressure will change things too
