Selecting Ammunition for your .308 Rifles

Very good info here!

For 200+ yard plain old target shooting, I use both the SMK and the Rem. Core-Lokt…168gr preferred.

I love my custom .308! it was carefully assembled by a family member who is a gunsmith, has a pillar bedded Mauser action and fiberglass bedded barrel, with a one piece stock/forearm that fits my larger frame perfectly.

Anyway, kudos to this post! Great reading on my fav rifle caliber :)))

Having said that, as a LE or military…
