My model 12 223 is the best shooting rifle that I've ever owned,and I have a bunch of rifles.My model 10/110 25/06 & 308 heavy barreled guns shoot real close to it though.

Here is a Mosin Nagant 91/30 sniper that has some history to it.

http://www.impactguns.com/inter-ordnance-m9130-pu-sniper-mosin-nagantwscope-762x54r-5rd-gmosi0021.aspx

History shows that a Russian sniper Vasily Zaytsev killed 225 soldiers and officers in the battle for Stalingrad around the end of WWII with one of these rifles.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vasily_Zaytsev
The movie Enemy At The Gates was based on his efforts in that battle.

I own one of these rifles & even with my bad eyes it is easy to make good shots out to 300 to 350 yds.
Hunting with one of these rifles shouldn't be a problem & ammo is cheap.

I am starting to get into reloading, I think I would go with the 308 though.

Awesome flat shooting caliber. Good choice. Iv built ALOT of 308s and like them all. I'm more into exotic calibers though my favorite gun/caliber is a 308 more potent than any most people will ever find. 308 in a 338 win mag casing known as 7.82 warbird

What kind of automatic? Because unless the 06 is a m1 garand NO 308 kicks harder than an 06.....at least none I've ever seen

Both of the rifles are remington 740's I had several people shoot them because I thought I was crazy, they all said that the .308 kicked harder.

I have several 740s and I have noticed heavy recoil out of the 308s-2 of em-but since I'm so used to magnum levels of recoil didn't think much of it.
