The .308 is a good hunting cartridge. IME, shooting at living animals, you should limit your shots to 300 yards. I hate if when people try to play sniper and wound animals at 500 yards.

If you really want to shoot 1000 yards, then I'd suggest an Accuracy International .338 LaPua magnum and a 10x Schmidt & Binder scope
History fails to record a single precedent in which nations subject to moral decay have not passed into political and economic decline. There has been either a spiritual awakening to overcome the moral lapse, or a progressive deterioration leading to ultimate national disaster.
Douglas MacArthur

If you think a strong military is expensive, think about what a weak one would cost
