    I m David from Barcelona. We don t have tradition in long range competition events in Spain. There aren t 800m field, almost no 300m...I can practice shooting at 200metres.

    This year is there a new competition and I ll go. I use a Steyr SSGg .308. I buy commercial AMMO,

    I need help about wich comercial ammo is better for 600m, 800m and 1000m? Do you ever target so long using comercial ammo? I look for and Sako .308 TRG 175gr , it would be a good option?

    Please help me. I dont have experience

    If I were looking for precision ammo outside of the US, I immediately think of Lapua. This round https://ammunitionstore.com/products/308-win-ammo-167gr-otm-scenar-lapua-50-round-box.html, if you can find it, would quite likely give you fantastic results. That being said, you will have to try different loads out in your rifle to see what it shoots the best. The ultimate choice would be to work up a custom load for your rifle, but I don’t know the legality/availability of reloading components in the EU.
