    Well i just bought a remington 5r milspec in a 308 and need some advice on some factory ammo to try. I dont reload yet so thats not an option. I would be hunting anything from coyotes to elk and would want a bullet that would be good out to 6-700 yards. I also did some reading that the 175 gr was better in this rifle instead of the 168. So if anyone has one or has some opinions ill take any advice i can get!

    Check out the new Hornady Superformance 178gr HPBT--should be a good shooter! 178gr @ 2775 fps .530 BC
