Re: Longest Big Game Kill With Rifle
427 yards, upstate Newark Valley, New York on a friends farm with a cal 308, 180 grain Cor-lockt remington Roundnose. In over 150 deer harvested over 40 years no more than 10 went over 10 yards after being hit. I beleive now you have to order direct from Remington as very few dealers carry RN's. Everyone wants Spire points but they lack the shock factor that a roundnose has. Have used the same bullet all over this country, and it has never failed me. If anyone remembers the shots that were taken with the M-24 and M42, in Nam by Carlos Hathcock the .308 has all the distance and accuracy that was necessary. Accuracy was achieved with cal 308, 168grain BTHP from Lapua. It was called a Kate.
