Shooting 500+ yards

Hello my name is Justice I currently have a 30-06 R700 i am getting the CZ .308 sniper rifle. I have seen the Drop Charts up to 500 yards but no higher than that. My goal is to be able to hit a human sized target at 1 mile (1760yards). i am trying to become accurate for USMC all i want to know is how to calculate the info it properly shoot up to 1 mile and know what you need to calculate. Help me out guys (:

Re: Shooting 500+ yards

You are going to have a bit of a problem stretching a 308 to 1700. It's probably been done
but not on a reliable basis.

Get a ballistics program , Shooter is a good one , as is FTE and Ballistics. And start

When are you going in?

Courage is just fear that has said it's prayers.

The people trying to say the 2nd Amendment is outdated are probably the same folks that would say the same thing about the Bible.
