ask Reaper308 for a definitive answer, but I would say your aim and marksmanship has alot to do with it. I would venture a guess at 800 to 1000 yds.

.308 is a good medium range round with the right shooter and bullet you can make shots out to 1200 yards with the .308. The .300 Winchester Mag is good out to 1800 yards and anything beyoud that the 338 Lapua Mag. or .408 CheyTac or the .50 BMG round.
