I have recently purchased a savage 10 fcp-k and it shoots so well with 168g a-max over varget im getting under an inch 3shot groups at 300yds. I know the a-max is not a hunting bullet. I think for antelope it might be fine but mulies in eastern colorado they might be too frangible. I have been looking at the 165g sst and the berger 168vld. I was just kinda hoping someone else has already done this as i know how many fans the 308 has. Im liking the 308win it has really impressed me. I would like for it to be a 500yd elk gun but I think im asking for a little too much there. Long range hunting is all new to me but im hooked so sorry if this has been asked a 100 times before. Thanks in advance.
