cause both have the SAME energy left at those respective ranges. I got news, the 308 won't reliably expand a sp in flesh at 500 yds, and the 223 will do so, given the right load and barrel. The 308 is down to 1200 fps (at best) at 1000 yds, and even a virtually undetectable 5 mph breeze will blow off the BEST 308 match bullet by 8" at 500 yds, easily enough to miss a man, or gut shoot a deer. If you need more than a 223, 300 win mag aint too much, either.
