I aquired a post `64 model 70 that shoots the sierra and speer 165 gr. bullets very well.I haven`t shot any game with it yet,but I have complete faith in them to kill elk sized game.

Re: Making A Case For The 308 Winchester By Michael Eichelle

Mr. Eichele I just read your article on the 308 winchester and it was a great article. I have a question regarding Sierra Gamekings. I was looking at using the 180 grain gameking out of my 308, 1/12 twist for whitetail deer hunting out to 500 yards. I contacted one of the Sierra techs and they advised me that this bullet was too hard and needed a min of 2100 fps on whitetail. I have read several of your post and see that you use the 200 grain gameking. Is the 200 grain gameking a little softer than the 180. Any info would be appreaciated.

Re: Making A Case For The 308 Winchester By Michael Eichelle

That's very interesting. The tech I talked to a while back claimed 1500'/sec.

I can't imagine very many soft nose bullets need ending 2100'/sec for expansion. Not even the Nosler partition.

Other than that I don't know what to say.

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.

Mr. Eichele, thx for the response. Would you see any reason not to try the 180 for whitetail out to 500 yards

I'll try anything once. But in the end, it's your choice. If they're shooting good then they're probably worth a try. I would be surprised if they didn't expand.

Re: Making A Case For The 308 Winchester By Michael Eichelle

Thanks again Mr. Eichelle, going to give them a try. I am currently shooting the Amax, but afraid of what my happen at close range. Where I hunt here in the East, shots could be anywhere from 30 yards out to 500 yards. Thanks again Sir.
