If anyone has fired the sierra match king .30 cal bullets in 168, 175, and 180 grain from a .308 winchester using the same gun and the other components were all the same I would like to know what velocities they were traveling at for your most accurate powder charge.

I am considering changing from a 168 gr to either a 175 or 180 and wanted to mess around with the ballistic charts using real world velocities that I could compare to my 168 gr loading.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen

Nightforce ATACR Scope Review
By Jeff Brozovich

The new NightForce ATACR is for sure a top choice for any long range shooter. Read More

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
