You know all this talk of this caliber and that is great and all but never confuse yourself to
the real issue, in terms of real world performance there is little difference between them on
deer class ...

Couple of articles that pretty well sum up my opinion on the matter, just written by people
with alot more experience then myself. 308 family of cartridges are fantastic, the 308 and
it's larger cous...

Yeah as a 7mm-08 fan I will agree with your friend it is about the most logical cartridge

recoil and you...

Don't really see the point other then in full auto sub guns, it super mild recoil and

I made a 742 reliable again, but not by turning it into a pump but by working up a 180gr RN
handload (56gr Ramshot Hunter). Went from jamming all the time to 100% perfect reliability, we
use it all th...

hardly a low...

260 Rem can launch .500+BC bullets 3,000+fps or .600+ BC bullets 2,800fps, none of the other
308 based cartridges can touch that. Even plain jane cheap 140gr hunting bullets often have an

LOL no, not had that issue since switching to the TTSX, but with Sierra bullets I would swab
out a considerably amount of lead flakes.

Oh I know they all tear up some meat, but I am talking excessive nasty damage, like having to
throw out the whole front half of a deer messy, none of my other rifles do anything like that
with SGKs no...
