Chambered in .308 Winchester: A Classic Choice

The choice of .308 Winchester for this custom build is both classic and practical. This caliber is known for its excellent ballistics, manageable recoil, and widespread availability, making it a top choice for both competitive shooting and hunting.

The .308 Winchester is known for its excellent ballistics, firing bullets typically weighing 150 to 180 grains at a muzzle velocity of 2,600 to 2,800 feet per second. This results in a muzzle energy of approximately 2,600 to 2,800 foot-pounds. It offers a flat trajectory up to 300 yards and a ballistic coefficient between .400 and .500, ensuring stability and reduced wind drift. Its versatility and manageable recoil make it a preferred choice for various shooting disciplines.
