Ok, so what I was hoping for was some general guidelines for the new people (myself included) but it seems nothing is ever that simple. We can all just let this one die. Thanks for all the information though, pretty enlightening thread.

You have a good idea but some people may see the 308 1000 yard and go out and think they can shoot at deer a 1/2 mile away and hurt people. That is where I and many others are coming from on here.

I definitely understand where you are coming from and that was something I didn't think of before I posted. I guess sometimes it just doesn't occur to me that people can be that irresponsible.
