In addition to a fair amount of skill, long-range shooting requires a quality rifle and some equally fine ammunition. If you have the time, you can get on your bench and load your own. Or you can get a hold of some of the many options from Gorilla Ammunition.
Mike Mosel, Gorilla’s director of operations, was nice enough to bring along some of Gorilla’s .308 and .223 ammunition so we would at least have a chance at the 800-yard targets. The 69-grain Sierra MatchKing for the .223 and the 168-grain SMK for the .308 came out of the barrel as if they already knew where they were supposed to go. We were able to easily hit the targets at 800 yards with the rifle ammo combo in .308; and, after some wind calculations, the .223 was soon hitting there as well.
Gorilla has a wide variety of ammo in those calibers, as well as in .260, .300 Blackout and 6.5 Creedmoor. Additional variety is available in hunting, defense, pistol and subsonic.
