Re: .308 palma

My advise with a 308 is keep it at 750 and closer, unless you wanna drop thousands to build a custom 32" barreled 13 twist palma rifle to shoot 155 smk palmas at 3100 fps with H4895 and CCI450s from palma brass when its 60-90* out.

My 308 is what I call my Johny Cash rifle, its a savage 7mag action, take off 10 fcp barrel, rifle basix trigger, egw base, bell and carlson stock, V24 scope. So almost a factory rifle!
