Re: Another new guy with a .308
I agree with BB, try some federal gold medal match 168. This will inform you of your rifles potential. I also agree with others......trigger job, float the stock and bed it if you cannot afford to upgrade the stock. The 308 is a fine 600 yard deer rifle.
Good luck and welcome!
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
