Damb, its' happy hour! I need a drink.
The .308 w/ a 165gr partition at 2700fps will have approx. 1578fpe at 300 yards, at 500 yards it is just over 1050fpe, not enough for an ethical kill on Elk.
With a 150 yard zero the bullet drops 58" or 11.1MOA. If Your scope has 1/4" adjustment, that is 44 clicks. At 300 yards bullet drop is 12", so a high shoulder/ back placement will put it in the boiler maker without touching the scope. You don't need long range for any game w/ the exception of antelope or goats. My 1st Elk, and my 1st Mule deer were taken w/ a 12ga slug gun in Colorado at less then 50 yards w/ slugs. The .308 is a great round for any game in the lower 48. 300 yards is a very respectable shot.
