Hi all. Following on from recent treads about which bullets to use in a 308 it has got me thinking. What would be the optimum bullet weight for the 308. I'm after fallow predominately.
I was thinking of going heavy for calibre but is there a point where going to heavy has a detremental affect on the performance.
I'm not into superfast balistic tipped shoots like a laser types but more get the deer humanely shot with little meat damage and fuss.
I was looking at 150 gn round or flat nosed. 165 gn soft points or 170 gn flat nosed.
On paper there is very little between them with muzzle energy but I wondered what the gathered collective have found in the real world
Sorry become not becone
