glad it works for you too. 1000yard deer capabilities from a 308.... Finaly!
Ya, ya, ya.................
All I know is that 1 year ago I would NEVER have believed that a 308 with a 26" barrel could deliver 1000 foot pounds of energy at 1000 yards. At least not at sea level in standard air. Running numbers at 2700 FPS even with Litz's BC of .633, it delivers well over 1000 pounds of energy at 1K with enough remaining velocity to easily open up the AMAX on game. At 5000' in 50 degree air where I hunt dall rams, the numbers are simply unbelievable with nearly 1300 foot pounds and less than 56" of drift in 10 MPH winds is a dream come true.
From a hunting standpoint this is awesome. From a match standpoint it would certainly do well, however the repetitive recoil would sure suck. The recoil is very managable but I can see where after 20 rounds or so, it would start to suck as I did note a sizeable increase in recoil going from the 168-190 bullets.
The next day or two will tell the tale when I actually shoot some groups. Untill then, it is good to dream a bit..........
