308 question

ok is there such a thing as a 325 gr bullet for a 308 and would it be capable of killing a coyote at 973 yards haha. The biggest 30 cal bullet iv heard of is 220 gr but i dont know much. And i dont know if 40 grains of powder would do much for a 325 gr bullet. A guy told me a story today with all these detail in it today and im just not beleaving it at all lol
thanks guys

Sierra makes a 240 MK bullet. I've not heard of anything bigger. The guy telling you the story is FOS likely unless he's talking about some homemade cast bullet of sorts.

Re: 308 question

Sierra used to make a 250, it was the forerunner of the 240. There might be a few of those left.

BTW, for a 308 to shoot a 325, the twist would would have to be a 4-5 twist.

Did he start off "this is no bull.... or Once upon a time..."?

Re: 308 question

Yes, it may be possible to have a bullet in 308 @ 325 gr as indicated via a custom design as Derek M indicated. If we assume that henke4310 is referring to the 308 Winchester round It is not going to have the horsepower with 43 gr of powder to do the job with any authority @ 925 yds.
