    factory load for 7mm rem mag

    No offense taken at all, just trying to learn what will do what, (GREENHORN) coupled with the fact that all of the ballitic tables that I have only go to 400 yds. (rather pathetic I know). My reasoning was simply this, I have read that the .308 is used to win shooting matches out to 1000yds...

    Hello all, Was just wondering if anyone could tell me why the .308 was chosen by so many marksmen / snipers.
