love it!I’ve never met Buzz, but that’s about the most sound advice you'll get. This year I shot an elk right at 350, no wind, lying prone over my pack. I’ve also passed on much, much closer shots because I couldn’t get a steady rest. Keep practicing under those field conditions and it’ll improve your abilities and your confidence. Maybe take up predator hunting in the off season to add some of that realism to it.
This makes no sense. Different bullets require different impact velocity. Different rifles shoot different velocity. Different manufacturers load did weight bullets at different velocity. All of that out of your specific rifle help you make the decision on what your range is after practicing.For a 308 Win
For hunting game
Your bullet performance range
Should be around 375 yards
Unless I am shooting a magnum that is a good ethical long shot at game with 308 win or 30-06
