    the 308 is good for anything less than 1000 the 22-250 is good for 600 in good conditions but with a 5=mph wind you could drift a long way. I say go big or go home
    here is a link to my blog it is all about long range shooting. I hope it helps you.

    Are those numbers fair to say. I'm having no trouble finding the 308 trajectory charts, drops, effects from wind etc. not so much for the 22-250. 500 is almost def my max.

    The .308 is more wind restistant. The Facts on a .308, is it drops 10ft at 500yrds and it travels at 2,650ft/s. I dont know the drop on a .22-250, but it shoots at a faster speed of 3,800ft/s. But the .308 will leave a bigger hole and has a problem with gravity. While the .22-250 has a problem with wind instead. So you choose. The .308(Drops) or the .22-250(Curve). I would choose the .22-250 for targeting. It curves but thats, when you really learn how to snipe. When you can hit your target with wind resistance.

    Not quite....

    Every bullet drops when fired at a level plane. Every bullet has an arc when sighted in. Gravity takes effect immediately upon the bullet leaving the barrel. In order for a bullet to hit a target that is dead level with the bore, it has to be fired in an upward direction, even if it is just 20 yards away.

    if you go to Hornady's web page you can find "balistic resource" if you enter the BC and velocity it will tell you the wind and drop.
    I would post the link but aperently you have to have at least 15 posts first.

    IMO the 308 would be the better longe range target cartridge for several reasons.

    22-250 rifles usually have twist rates of 1 in 14 or 1 in 12in some rifles which means bullets heavier than 55-60 gr. don't stabilize very good.they might be ok out to 200-300 yards but past that they get wobbly.308 rifles are generally 1 in 10

    because there are so many different bullets and loads available for each caliber ,trajectory cannot be generalized ,ballistic coefficient ,velocity, angle of the barrel when fired,all are important.....if you are shooting 500 yards inches do matter.

    although the 22-250 is a flatter shooting cartridge ,being lighter it runs out of gas pretty fast,which makes it way more succeptable to cross winds or head winds. For comparison a 22-250 load with a 55 gr.sp with a bc of .25 at 3700 fps has slowed to 2190fps at 400 yds. and 1840 fps at 500. a load for 308 with a 150 gr.sp,bc of .42, leaves the muzzle at 2900 fps sits at 2065 at 400 yds. and 1881 at 500. Although the velocities are close at 400 and 500 yds.the 308 started out 800 fps slower.The 22-250 has 440 foot lbs of energy left while the 308 has 1200.

    Gravity affects all bullets exactly the same way and at the same rate.

    Interesting show on Myth-Busters where they tried to demonstrate that a bullet fired from a gun, would hit the ground at the same time a bullet dropped from the same height (as the barrel of the gun) would, if the gun was fired horizontally.

    I didn't realise there was going to be such a mixed review on this. Kinda figured there was going to be a clear winner. Is it fair to say that the 22-250 will shoot tighter groups out to 300 Then the 308 will get better groups any further as wind becomes more of a factor on the slowed down 22-250? Ive found several claims saying that the savage bvss in 22-250 will shoot less then an inch at 200. can't seem to find anyone with the same gun in 308 claiming anything.
