Reminds me of an old ford escort. Nothing remarkable. But it gets there.

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

Michael, have you noticed a difference between the 168 amax and the 178??

I got a new rifle in 308 some months ago and have been using it for shooting goats with the 168.-<Made some nice kills at up to 670 yds with a "no confirmed" at 880.....yes it takes the bullet longer to arrive than a laser cartridge but once it´s there.. the animal does nt notice the difference. I have been thinking about trying the 178 for abetter BC but I am not sure it will really compensate for the loss of velocity. Shooting a 22" LW barrel.

BTW I forgot to ask.. how do you like the 177 GS bullets?? Is the BC as advertised?

Will they open up at extended ranges???

Thanks

The only real difference is about .020 in the BC department. I am running the 168's at 2833 and the 178's at 2750. It is nearly a wash at hunting ranges. I use the 168 due to the fact that my rifle likes that bullet better than the 178. It does fairly well with the 178 but shines really bright with the 168 AMAX.

I actually cannot vouch for it. The example used in the article was a mathematical hypothetic example.

Another member here is using the 177 and stated the BC to be very very close to advertised.

Michael,

Thanks for the great article.

The question I have is, what powders and primers should I start with? I have Nosler Brass and 168gr. Sierra MK's.
