A lot depends upon the accuracy of the rifle and shooter but as
trebark says, those of us who used the 308 for 1000 yard competition on a regular basis have a lot of faith and knowledge concerning our ability to place bullets where they need to go.

As long as I have faith in myself and my rifle and a good hunting bullet in the chamber I will pull the trigger.
