I bought a new 788 remmington back in 1978 , maybe. 1-10 twist and I have shoot to 600 yards enought to understand why this low cost rifle was the rifle to beet for light weight factory firearms. I found Lapua 155gr scenar is one of the few that will stay super sonic if you shoot to a 1000 yards also out of shorter barrels. The 308 is streaching it at that distance with out 28 to 32" barrels. Hornadys SST loads make very good hunting ammo too.
