    True. .308 bullets usually don't have faces.

    .308 Ballistics

    Well spotted gimp, was trying to figure the error.
    A big fast bullet beats a little fast bullet every time

    Extended mag box will make short work of that

    Good Call.

    -There may also be an error in the maths: The graph suggests that a .308 projectile with a trajectory 50 inches high at 200yds will make it to 800 yds. I suspect this is an exageration. Perhaps they forgot to put a "x 10 to the power of" on the 50.

    Then there's the compressed load .308 graph with the hot burning powder of course. That must have been the factory ammo graph that you found!!
