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.

    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..."?

    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.
