check out this ballistics calculator and compare some calibers to the 308.

bottom line is this. some people like ford, some like dodge, some like gm and some prefer to drive a Tacoma (covered wagon). every body is different and all calibers will kill. it just comes down to preference. I`m sure we have some resident "gun experts" that can cover this topic better than I can.
Its funny how people can give their opinion on the best round to hunt with but when you disagree they get but hurt. There is no perfect round out there. I hate .270, 30.06 and .308 cause they are boring, everyone owns one and I rather hunt with something different cause there are better calibers out there. I own all 3 and all 3 never come out of the safes.

Okay for ballistic reasons. I completely understand. .308 is not the best ballistics. I agree with you on that one.


Not being an ass to you or Splittine I was just curious.

Well I like my Toyota But I have the T-100. Think it looks a little better than the Tacomas. Actually looks like a truck compared to the little bubbles. One thing I never liked about the tacoma..... and the short bed.

There have been 34 posts to this thread and nobody has mentioned a .223

Hard to beat a Tikka T 3 Lite in your favorite caliber.

The Tikka T3 has been mentioned alot and Im not sure what your wanting to spend but the Sako .308 is an awesome gun and its just a little step up from the Tikka but there pretty much the same gun. I love mine and it shoots great and its super light. I think a Tikka T3 is around $800 and the Sako 35 is around $1400. Both are awesome guns.

Probably because he stated how he wants an extremely popular cartridge that he can hunt whitetails and maybe elk with and to be able to walk into a store in the middle of Montana and buy a box of ammo.
