Re: Loads for 308win 180gr Accubond?
I agree w/ JD. I would not use 308's at long range for elk. Yes you can kill an elk but the chances of a horribly wounded animal are very high. The elk deserve more respect than stunt shooting. That being said, deer are considerably smaller and easier to kill. A 308 is no prob at long range with the right bullet/weight combo.
Last year I killed my deer at long range using a 175 gr MK. in a 308. My partner was laying beside me with his Lilja bbl'd 300 win, in case anything went wrong. I had lasered the deer, consulted my come up chart, figured my cosign angle and put the round right below his ear, which was exactly where I was aiming. No problem, just LOTS of preparation.
