How to work on long range precision with a max of 300 meter range? My local range is 300m. I heard that trying to shot 22 LR 300m is very similar in bullet drop as 308 at 1000m. Is shooting a 3 inch plate at 300 meters just as hard as a 10 inch plate at 1000m? I know 308 is not the best round for long distance, but most popular because cost. Also shooting 22 LR has a much cheaper price like (.11c for match ammo) than centerfire rifle and has a harder wind calls because of light slow bullets. Also with two young kids this could be cheap family fun in a couple of years.
