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

I popped my elk at 230yds, I know its not super long, but it dropped where it stood. I also drilled a jackrabbit in the Pawnee grasslands of CO @ 630yds one shot, one kill. plus lots o prairie poodles at 3-500yds.
the longest kill were watermelons @ 1600yds. Bang! wait for it... wait for it... wack! HAHA! what fun!
Ghallager has nothin on bustin watermelons!

    Well if opinions count this is mine. The 308 is a puny little under-powered pea shooter........but it is the best puny little pea shooter there ever was! I have many rifles of large caliber, but will most often choose my 308 win with a 150gr. TSX at 3050fps out to 500ish. I love to kill elk, help kill elk, and get paid to provide a guide service to kill elk. If I have my pick of sports at the lodge, or eager elk hunting friends, I will take the guy shooting the 270, 30-06, or 308 over an in shape super trooper who packs some magnum any day. To me Shot placement beats horsepower any day of the season. I have seen so many first time hunters make some amazing shots-kills with what "todays standards" say are underpowered rifles.

    In the last couple years, is their anyone out there who can add to this post? I use to think that my 308 was a practice only caliber, but now I'm thinking it may just work for some of my hunting.
