Trying to cut some corners and hope I can find some help here.
I have just gotten my rig, . . .
DPMS LR-308L upper 18", 1/10 twist SS barrel
CMMG Mk III Lower,
Geissele DMR two stage trigger
Magpul PRS stock
Magpul MOE grip
NightForce 3.5-15X50 NXS NP-R1 reticle
GG&G Accucam QD mount
Burris Fastfire II MRD
GG&G B-Comp MRD mount
Harris S-LM Bipod Leg Notch Sling Swivel 9-13 inch
Blue Force/Vickers two point padded sling
DPMS carbon fibre fore grip
Weight 11.7 lbs. configured as above, but still a soft shooter.
I know you don't need all that information but I can't help showing off a little.
To make a long story short is there a general rule if I should use heaver weight bullets or lighter weight bullets with a shorter barrel for longer distances?
I'm guessing this rig will serve equally for some Long Range target shooting, multigun and as a coyote/pig killer although I've done very little of any so far. Most long range target will be 600-800 yds and the others will vary greatly I suspect. So just for the long range 600-800 yd shot what should I go with first, heavy or light bullets?
I decided on the LR-308L and 18in. hoping the barrel will be stiff enough for accuracy and to keep weight down. I have been reloading for about a year and some months on a Dillon XL-650 in pistol and .223. Looking forward to your replies.
BTW: did do a google search but got back mostly stuff for pistol. Thanks
