Re: What is you longest kill with the 308win?
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 (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, 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.
