    With what you list above I think about 700yds would be my max.

    If that's what I were shooting though I'd move up to the 180-190 class bullets and see if you can't get it under 1 MOA so you can take it on out to 1,000dys under ideal conditions.

    350 yards MAX, 13" at 800 yards is approx 1.75 MOA.
    1.75 MOA at 350 yards is about 6", assuming you can get your first shot within .5 MOA of your POA that is a total of 12" error, approx the same size as a whitetails vitals.

    Biggest fail of 2014 so far... http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...ea-ftf-128972/

    My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

    Left to right broad side a WT has about 24-30" of vitals from the back end of the lungs to the mid neck and 18" from the top of the withers to bottom of he brisket.

    Make an + at the mid point of the shoulders and figurre then 7" above/below and 12" left/right.

    so that moves it out to around 450-475 yards using the same system as below to meet the 18" from back to brisket.
