    The biggest thing I have found with .308win, is when the bullet transitions from supersonic to subsonic. These projectiles become pretty unstable. So you need to pay attention to what distance this transition happens. I think that's why my efforts out to the mile with the 208gr bullets never reaped any fruit.
    Thanks for the info. It was something that I hadn't actually thought of!

    Barnes TTSX are hunting bullets but can be extremely accurate. For a .308 stick with the 130 or 150 gr, that's all you will ever need. Deer, moose, bear, whatever.

    For accuracy at long range, Hornady ELD are really kicking ass these days.
