So what is your longest kill to date with the .308? What bullet did you use? Looks like the 155 made a mess of things!

Longest deer was a small sika calf just over 400yds. 155 a-max work fine at that range.
Didn't use the 308 much last season because the old sako didn't feed well. I started converting her to an AICS mag system and will use her more again
once that is sorted.

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

My longest kill with my Mil Spec 308 with a MK4 3.5x10 Mildot was a coyote at 550 yards. This was memorable because my battery in my rangefinder was dead and used my Mildot to get a range on him. I have shot mule deer and whitetail out to 300 yards. My favorite bullets are the Hornady 165 SST and 165 Ballistic Tips loaded to 2800 with 45.3 gr of Varget. Both bullets produce 2.5", 5 shot groups at 500 yards and perform well at 308 velocities.

My longest kill to date with a .308 is a head shot on a groundhog at 632 yards using a 168 Nosler custom comp. I use 168 Berger hybrids now. Did a good job on a deer at 150yds.

I really don't hunt longrange with my .308 even though it is an exceptionally accurate rifle. I did, however, drop this nice buck in a cotton field with a 155gr A-Max. A single shot at 200 yds did the job.
