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