Re: long range

It all depends on the intended game. If you gave some more specifics you might get better answers.

Re: long range

If those are the 3 choices, I would pick the 308 win. Lots of bullets, good size of bullets, VERY accurate and very effective on deer sized game to 600+ yards. Easy to load for, lots of data and info...Low recoil, long bbl life. Did I mention accuracy?

Hope that helps
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, 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.

Re: long range

If you want to see some impressive results check out GoodGrouper's 6br tejas, I think that is what it is called. very little powder and great long range results. I don't know about it for real long range deer and other medium sized game unless your deer are as light as our deer are in Oklahoma.

Good Luck
