The 308 is not a very flat shooting round, with a 200yrd. zero it drops around 30" at 400yrds. I think the military says it's effective range is about 1200 meters. I read a post the other day on here I think about the 260 having a higher b.c. with a shightly smaller s.d. and more punch at those distances with 140gr. bullets. Also a lot flatter and not having to wait as long for bullet to reach the target. In my opinion the 7mm-08 is too close at those distance to have any real advantage over the 308, but the 260 might just be the ticket; better yet the 260ai.
