Re: Federal GMM 168\'s for 1000 yards

I have a Savage 10FP in 308. I shoot the 168SMK at 2725. I have shot it out to 1000 and have not had any problems. It is not quite as accurate as my 30-06 with the 190SMK though. Those were some nice scores. I currently shoot highpower (service rifle) for my college team and have been interested in F Class for a while. Maybe I will give it a try sometime.

I was just out shooting the 308 across the Oehler and the LOT of Fed GMM 168's I have chronograph at 2756 avg. for 4 shots. Sort of explains the difference between the published 2600 - 2640 trajectory and the results I was getting. New prediction 90 degrees, 500 ASL .446 BC 14.1 at 600yds and 34.9 at 1000yds, I used 13.75 for 600 and 36.5 for 1000.

The rifle has a 24" Mike Rock 5R barrel.
