That's a nice one randy. I used to have a .41 mag Blackhawk that I shouldn't have sold. It would have given me another opportunity for another lever gun.
Sold two Blackhawks--bad mistake.

JTJ gave a good response. Recoil in a .308 is not excessive, but if you plan to thread the barrel, look at a suppressor. I use one suppressor for .223, .308 and .300 Win Mag and don't shoot much...

I love my M1As, all three of them. And, they do make good hunting rifles, especially in the woods here. They are even better after they have been accurized by a competent M14 armorer.

Another New Addition

I would have to say that of all my rifles, the M14 is my favorite. But then the Milspec 5Rs, Garands, M1903s all have their places in my heart as well. I shoot target and hunt with all of them.

Marlin, I tend to agree, I will look closely at the X7 soon. I have heard and read a lot of good comments about it. I think it may go well with a NF compact NXS 1X4 for this woodsy short range...
