Re: Hart HV .308 barrel, 1-9" - what to do with it??

Thanks guys for your feedback,

My interest in LR shooting is pretty limited by your standards. I like rifles I can carry around, 16-17 pounds/26-27" barrels, is the absolute heaviest I am willing to go. My 30-06 is about 15 lbs. .308 goes 12 lbs. Eventually I'm going to build a .338WinMag with a 27" #8 barrel, aiming for about 17 lbs.

I know these cartridges lack the ballistic stimulation of your 2000 yd, 416 based boomers. But I'm really only interested in maximum ranges of around 1000-1300 yards. Thats about the limit of my optics/cartridge/weight limit. A LRF 1200 is about all I am willing to spend on a laser as well.

Back in my Montana, at 4000 ft elevation, my cartridge choices deliver what I consider good performance out to 1300:

Yards: 1300
Vel: 1354
Energy: 978.2
Traj: -47.8 moa

Yards: 1300
Vel: 1415
Energy: 1334
Traj: -46.1 moa

This performance satisfies me.
