I was going to let sleeping dogs lie but seriously, listening to him talk about ballistics is like listening to a virgin describe sex. A quick glance at any reloading...

It's kinda rare to find a factory 20" gun with a chrome lined 1 in 7' twist barrel most of them are 1 in 9 I'm really beginning to think this is a mole hill being made into mountain.

Now that's interesting because I hand load that bullet with CFE 223 (can't remember the charge) and it goes through the chrono at 3100 fps from my 16" psma (1in 7 chrome lined) with no problems at...

I stand corrected, who gets the 5 bucks?

Twist rates and barrel lengths are not necessarily tied together. I still don't think federal should be marketing ammo to the civilian market if it won't...

If you split a hair fine enough your bound to find a slice you like. Notice that the OP didn't mention his barrel length but I'd be willing to lay 5 bucks down on it being a 16". That's only and inch...

If you are going to spend that much get a Noveske. You can't beat the quality. Wilson Combats are real good but I don't really like Some of the things Wilson has done in the industry. I know nothing...

Never said the recoil was comparable I said the 30-06 was more versatile. If you are that recoil sensitive then by all means get a smaller gun... Not sure why one would choose a smaller bullet...

Maybe, but when that bruiser walks out and I'm shaking like a leaf in a hurricane I'm not thinking about recoil. Those big boys go farther shot in one lung with a .243 than with a .308...

Most factory 44 mag is light for a pistol much less a rifle. Go get yourself a single stage press, scale and a set of dies. I had a hand load for my ruger Deerfield that would kick 240 gr bullets out...

Not a compromise 270 has a ballistic advantage over the .308, .243 and the 7mm-08 although the 7mm-08 comes with a wider range of bullets available and no caliber can match the variety of the .308...

Finding a scope to accept 500m of dope from a 308 consistently for under 1000 dollars is pretty darn hard. The leupold VX tacticals do pretty good but the insides rattle apart after a while, usually...
