G'day all, I'm making the step up to medium long range shooting. It's not my primany form of hunting, there are some places I hunt that if willing will allow me to make 400m - 600 and a few 1000m areas too, but I don't think I'm up to that yet. Anyway what I'm doing is going about builing a heavy, stable tactical stype rifle in .308win for smedium (roe deer, fallow deer and wild boar) out to 600m. Like I posted in the Long Range Hunting Forum I have done a lot of shooting @ 300m with a 6PPC heavy varminter and do a lot of target with it. On paper it will go into 1 inch @ 300m .2 at 100 on a good day. the scope is a NF 3.5-15x56 and about right for shooting out to 300m in my opinion. The 6PPC is rather an aneamic caliber, but very accurate, hence my chosing the .308win over .300RUM and 7mmSTW for my first serious LRH rig. The 6PPC's accuracy and my confidence in the weapon have far outweighed any ballisted "whimpyness" so for this type of game I can't imagine having any problems with the .308win. On the .308 I want to move up to a NF 8-32x56, I like high mag and tend to use the 3.5-15 as a fixed 15x. I am fairly new to 300m+ shooting so I'm open to any suggestions. Thanks.
