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

My longest 308 kill was also my longest to date. 1163 yds on a coyote. 155 amax over 46.9 gr of varget. lapua brass fed 210. I would love to say it was my first shot but that yote had two warnings first. Hole in him was in the middle of his back from the sharp downward angle. Rifle is a stainless howa varmint. Love that gun. Longest deer was 709yds, same load. That is about as far as I will shoot a deer with that gun. Amax still performed well.

I know I will probably get Looked down upon for this, but the farthest that I have taken an animal with my 308 was a little three point muley at 1015 yards. The bullet entered through the facing shoulder and didn't exit. Deer went about 15 yards and tipped over. That's my farthest but I have also taken several deer and antelope from the 500-800 yard range. I was shooting 168gr. A-Max on top of 42gr. Rl 15.

Awesome stuff here, I have 2 308's and love them, just haven't had a decent long shot yet. This tells me I'm solid with good placement out to 600 on whitetail. Pumped, I love my loaded 308 at 6 1/4 lbs., scoped.

my farthest kill with the 308 winchester is just 2 days ago now and was a coyote at 1275 +/- had to range a bush to get a good reading and was pushing a 215 berger out of a 22.85" shillen select match barrel mounted on a remington 700 with a weaver 3-15x50 emdr up top dropped right there

Could you please tell us a little about your load data. Powder, primer, OAL?
