The 308 has won more rifle competitions than any other caliber.

My brother had a model 600 308 shorter barrel than a 660.He shot his first elk with it at age 12 and took a number of elk,deer and blackbear with it later on.His was not the mohawk and had the vent rib barrel. I have a model 600 in 350 magnum. The slot in the stock where the safety slides on some of the earlier models prevented the safety from being completely locked. Its pretty easy to lengthen the slot your self.

I have used mostly 30-06 and 280 remingtons for the last 20 years. Thank you for your advice, I greatly appreciate it.

Great choice, I've had a Rem.700 ADL in .308 since 1983, money could not buy it. I always reached for it when deer hunting but I have a nice Marlin 30AW which I may try this year....

I agree with you 100%. Has always been my DEER rifle, here in Kentucky Hill country. The .308 has such a large choice when it comes to reloading. I've even load the .224 pills in saabots, but I never went above the 165gr.
