.308 Winchester supersonic at 1100 yards?
Saw an ad in the American Rifleman comparing the .308 to the .338 Lapua. Claims the .308 is supersonic to 1100 yards while the Lapua is supersonic to 1800 yards. This does not hold true in my experience...some of it from shooting the .308 at 1000 yards and some of it from working in the target butts....(you can hear a supersonic round going over your head) Hell, I've seen .308s that didn't make it to the 1000 yard berm.... What's your take on this claim?
