I recommend the .308, but only for the taking of legal game, in season, and/or predators, not for just shooting anything that moves!

Please don't be another one of "those idiots" that give us hunters and gun owners a bad rep.!

Paper targets are better than wasting the life of a chipmunk. And will make you a better shooter faster.

You are probably talking about ground squirrels not chipmunks in Az. and shoot the hell out of them. They can destroy a field with thousands of holes. For them a .308 is the only choice you have out of what you gave. Not my choice as you can shoot hundreds of rounds a day. Will make you a great shot with your big game rifle though. It will be the best choice for varmints to. Not a great choice for anything you have to shoot. Others can tell you there choices of firearm, though you didn't mention other choices.
