What is you longest kill with the 308win?

If you hunt with the 308 win I would love to here your sucess stories at long range.

I have only taken one animal with the 308 win it was a white tailed doe at 200 yds with a 175g SMK. I know there has to be some one who can beat that?

We killed praire dogs with a factory mod. 70 stealth with a NF 12-42 at 1000-1340 yds. This was 2 years ago in South Dakota.

Took a lope at 505 last year,was looking for a 600 yard shot for the VTR but limited visabilty made the shots hard to come by.

763 yard dall sheep 9-1-02. 168 SMK 2660 FPS. One shot fired, one dead ram. That is also my longest kill period.

The next year on opening day I set up my rig for a ram at 600 even for my buddy. Another ram down. Later that season I bagged mine at 425 (more than one shot).

In 06 I took 3 wolves at 360 yards. Not long range but getting out there for a small target.

In 07 I dropped a bull moose in his tracks at 438. One shot, flop.

Those are my longest kills with the 308 winnie.

Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.

Thats great guys I love my 308 win I just never here stories about guys taking game with them in here. I know its not the best long range hunting round but it works.

Hears another question what is you bullet choice for the 308 win?

I shot my doe with an SMK only beacuse its what I had loaded at the time but I have a lot of Bergers and AMAX bullets as well.

Re: What is you longest kill with the 308win?

I shot a 5x5 elk @ 40 yrds using a 300 mag using the amax .I also have taken two 8 pointers and 1 muley with the 155grain amax . Now I have a 300rum and I shoot the 208 amax when you run them over 3000 fps they explode like little bombs I know they don't retain their weight but just ask the deer on my wall they are all firm believers in AMAX BULLETS LOL
