    Right now I just picked up a cheapy 3x9 Tasco for it, but I am saving up for a Leupold.

    Range at the PD; only 75 yards though :wtc:

    I picked this thing up at a fun show for under $600, and even paid with a credit card :bigthumb:

    I actually went to get an AK of some sort, and found a really nice Polish tantal that the guy wanted $850 for, so I passed. He also had some beat to shit WASR-10's for $650 :ugh::rofl: Fucking Obama

  13. You are new here. Try and explain to us exactly what calibers are "better" since the threadstarter hasn't told us what his intended use for the rifle is.

    :rofl::rofl:

    I wondered if someone was gonna go after that.



    Obviously, the thread starter is a complete failure as both a human being, and a gun owner (and probably gay to boot) for not choosing a 340 Howell.
     
  15. I was gonna argue for 7mm SAUM. :hs:
     
  16. Maybe this guy is one of Alky's friends, you know, the ones who develop munitions for the SEALS.

    Well, Mr. Ron Jeremy you asked Why Not and I asked Why. I apologize for being new to OT, and never meant to flame and that is why I asked WHY .308 and why I put better in quotes ('Better'). Don't get me wrong, .308 is a good caliber, but as far as a FPS and Energyy combo there are better and you cannot deny that. I was hoping to find his intended purpose by asking him why he chose .308.

    Maybe he just means that you can get larger or more high-powered rounds in basically the same platform, an example being something like .300WM. I think it's kind of ridiculous to argue for larger rounds as being necessarily "better" without having an exhaustive list of all the intentions the owner of this rifle would have for it.

    EDIT: nvm
     
  21. Just remember that the few times most people shoot their rifles they are putting holes in paper at closer ranges than they fantasized about when they bought the thing. Even if you are hunting most creatures on this continent, .308 is fine. The main advantage is commonly available high quality ammo. Most people don't reload, and that's a huge factor when you're choosing between something like a .300WSM, 7mm SAUM, and a .308

    Exactly, thank you.

    Edit: I prefer the .308's little brother the .243 and my intentions for that weapon is white tail deer.

    Indeed :bigthumb: I prefer .308 because it will easily kill most animals on this continent, and there is an abundance of available ammo, most consider it a "stock" round... so if the world came to an end :ahem: .308 would be easier to find than a lot of other calibers.

    Plus I can go out and shoot all day with .308 without my shoulder killing me the next day like .338 lapua would :mamoru:

    .308 is accurate, deadly and inexpensive. There are more difficult calibers to find and certainly more expensive. A caliber that is easy to acquire and inexpensive enough to practice with is a good thing.
