We have a lot of brush and strip mines where either shot could be present from 30 yards to 300yards. It does a dang fine job. I wouldn't be a bit afraid to take a 3-400 yard shot as long as I had a good rest of course.
It's a beast period. Not just in the east. The .308 has killed everything from the Taliban to grizzly bears. At 400 yards the .308 winchester will kill anything with a pulse.
