    You are going to have a bit of a problem stretching a 308 to 1700. It's probably been done
    but not on a reliable basis.

    Get a ballistics program , Shooter is a good one , as is FTE and Ballistics. And start
    reading.

    When are you going in?

    well i under stand that a .308 wouldnt be a good gun for that but when i say shooting a mile i mean with a gun with toughs capabilities like .338, .50 BMG, .408.... I am joining in less than 1.5 years i have a problem with my schooling that i must take care of
