I don't know what you think that you're talking about here but it's not a .308!
Attached is a ballistics table for a 150gr Federal power shok soft point with a muzzle velocity of 2820. Even with bullets as heavy as 180gr the velocity at 300 yards is still over 2000 and the drop is about 11inches.
For target shooting people take .308 to 800 or even 1000 yards frequently. For hunting generally 400-500 would be the max ethical kill range due to energy loss, if a shooter and rifle were able to make proper bullet placement at that range.
