400 yrds if you dont do your homework your target is pretty safe.
500 yrds your target is as safe as a kitten in mamas arms. Especailly if there is any wind.
YOu should be asking about optics, range finders, mil dots, chrony, bbl length, and match ammo.
My choice is a Savage in 308 with 26" of bull bbl and accutrigger, then the optic. OH that is a can of worms. Then the ammo, hahahahahaha.
Tell us something, is this for self defense when the zombies come?
I would look to push a 165 gr bullet 3000 fps at the muzzel.
For distance shooting you need to look at it alittle differently. I am no expert to 1000 yrds but it is just a math problem for me. 500 yrds in any direction around me and nothing is safe from me.
Good points! I will be asking about the above, when I finally decide on a cartridge and weapon.
JLA has it down - yotes and occasional 2 legged predators is what i read in the OP.
What do you guys think of the .243 / 6mm?
