Re: .308 Winchester range?
1,000-1,250 yards with the right load, rifle, and shooter that can get it there. I mean, there have been snipers who have taken further shots than that, but I think 1,250 is pushing it for a .308...
I certainly wouldn't try to kill anything larger than a deer @ 1,000 with it, personally. Deer are pretty thin-skinned and if you use a clean shoulder shot, you should be ok. With a good hot load you should be ok.
My 168gr load is pushing right around 2,775 out the muzzle.
