A few guys have had good luck with the 168gr Amax (.475 BC), and some guys like to shoot the heavy 185gr Bergers (.569 BC), 185gr Scenars (.521 BC), or 190gr SMKs (.533 BC) at 1000 yards, but the vast majority of.308 shooters are running the 155s, or the 168 or 175 Sierras.
The Lapua 155 has an impressive.508 BC (and you can see that it is even longer than a 175 MK), and you can launch it much faster than a 168- or 175-grainer.

 Greatest emporium in the world   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Up to the time of Alexander the Great (Pella, 356 BC – Babylone, 323 BC), Egypt lacked permanent, suitable harbours on its northern coast, as those landing-places located at the mouth of some branches of the Delta (best known of which were the ones at Canopus and Pelusium) were of a temporary nature.
The date 116 BC of these Latin inscriptions is of special interest because it coincides with an event of global significance, namely the discovery of the monsoon winds in the Indian Ocean by Alexandrian navigators.
It is also perhaps not entirely irrelevant that in 55 BC, the Senate decided to send Gabinius at the head of a Roman army to restore Auletes to his throne and remain in Alexandria for the protection of the king against possible future revolts.

 Elymais (Elam)
In 2900 BC the Elamites had already developed a pictographic written language of their own, well before the Mycenaean and Minoan Greeks had even begun to think about creating inventories using their Linear A and B scripts.
With the fall of Nineveh in 612 BC, Elymais passed from the sphere of the Assyrians into that of the Chaldaean rulers of Babylon, who used part of the territory to forcibly relocate Jewish notables deported from the defunct kingdom of Judah.
Shortly after 190 BC a native dynasty was founded by Kamnaskires I Megas Soter, who ruled Elymais and the capital at Susa, but maintained a cordial relationship with the Seleukid court.

Peukestas is noted as controlling 600 Greek and Thracian horsemen, presumably retired mercenary colonists, and Seleukos seemingly found 200-odd cavalry amongst the colonists he picked up in 312 BC on the way to attack Nicanor; Hippostratos may have had 1000 Thracian colonist cavalry.
Seleukos fought in India from 307 BC to 303 BC, when he concluded a peace settlement with Maurya Chandragupta which saw him exchange his Indian possessions for 500 elephants, some 400 of which were fielded at the battle of Ipsos.
By 308 BC he had secured most of the upper satrapies and could command widespread loyalty, hence the option for a second sub-general.

 Pyramids in the Sudan - Nubia - Crystalinks
The restoration of the ram's fleece, in spiral curls, is also found on the even larger statues which border the access to the Temple of Amon at Meroe.
The area of the Nile valley known as Nubia that lies within present day Sudan was home to three Kushite kingdoms during antiquity: the first with its capital at Kerma (2400­1500 BC), that centred on Napata (1000­300 BC) and, finally, that of Meroe (300 BC­300).
The Napatan domination of Egypt was relatively brief - it ended with the Assyrian conquest in 656 BC - but its cultural impact was enormous, and this coalesced into an extraordinary burst of pyramid-building activity that was sustained throughout the existence of Napata's successor kingdom, Meroe.

The book claims to have been written sometime in the 6th century BC, but because of the accuracy of its detailed predictions, Daniel's critics insist that it must have been written after the events described.
