My hunting buddy and I have started a Long Range quest. We have 3 other guys at deer camp that have purchased Rem 700 heavy barrel 308s. Of course we can't let those guys out-do us
We have purchased a used Sako 579L 308 with a heavy barrel. Along with a Luepold VXIII 6.5 - 20x50 and a set of Redding dies. We plan to start loads with Reloder 15 and use some bullets (150 & 165gr) that we have on hand.
Our goal is 4" five shot groups @ 500 yards. My question is are we going in the right direction? And, of course, how do we get there the quickest without breaking the bank?
Thanks in advance,
