Well the questions start. Are you shooting a 12" gong or a 6ft target? Some Surplus ammo is outstanding, other then that handloads. If you start buying match ammo you better have deep pockets.

You first need to find a type of ammo that your gun will shoot accurately.Not all rifles will shoot the same type of ammo well.
If you have some that will shoot moa or better at 100 yards,then it most likely will shoot good at farther ranges,but there are plenty of other variables that fall into play shooting at longer ranges.

i am guessing that at the distance you're stated you want to shoot, that this target shooting? might want to step up to about 165 gr weight bullet so that it will not be as swayed by the wind. unless you reload, then probably premium or match grade ammo is about the best solution. you might have to try several different brands and types to find what is best suited for your rifle. premium or match grade ammo is usually much more expensive also.

might be good time to think about reloading. you can make ammo that is fine tuned to your rifle that is much more cost effective than the factory premium ammo.

I like to shoot 175gr Sierra Matchkings and 178gr Hornady bullets.
Hornady offers the 178gr in their ammunition-

HSM Ammunition offers factory ammo with both the 175gr SMK and the Hornady 178gr AMax

Midway USA offers several different brands of 308 Match grade ammo-

The Federal Gold Match with the 168 gr Sierra BTHP is the standard everyone else is judged against. Out to 600 or so, I would default to that load. 800 is a different animal. 175 is called for
