    and buying a 700PSS .308

    Gun is used for putting holes in paper and hunting.

    Should I bother? How is the recoil between the two? Ammo availability? I know I'll end up paying a few hundred out of pocket after the sale but I should have plenty time before hunting season comes back around.

    if it's for hunting I really don't see why you'd want a PSS

    I'm asking if I'd gain anything.

    Otherwise, I'll just swap the wood swap for synthetic and be done.

    Aside from a lot more aftermarket support for the 700PSS, and the fact that the .308 would be a short action I don't think you'd gain a whole lot.

    .30-06 surplus ammo is alot more available right now than .308. New ammo prices are nearly identical, and there is a shit-ton of bullet selection with both. The .30-06 will give you more flexibility if you ever decide to start handloading.

    I'm going with .308 for my new rifle, but if I already had a .30-06 I wouldn't go to the expense of the switch unless there was something specific I didn't like about the current rifle.

    Thanks. I think I'll keep the Savage and just upgrade the trigger and stock.

    Does anyone know if someone makes a larger/tactical bolt for the 110? I'm a lefty with an RH gun so I think a bigger bolt handle might make my life a little easier also.

    They sell the factory one but it's listed as out of stock. :( I emailed them anyway to see if I get lucky.

    Brownell's has one but I don't know if I like the looks of it...
