I am getting some good info thus far and really value all you guys experience and recommendations. I found a good short read about the 308 vs the 30-06 which seems to make a good case for the 308 being a smaller round with basically the same performance as the 30-06. What weight bullets do you use? Just curious.
Also, it looks like there is a Winchester Model 770 and a Remington Model 770 in 308 or 30-06. Also looks like Cheaper then dirt has 308 ammo available a bit cheaper then 30-06 in some off brands, but for the most part about the same cost in brand names.
I like hearing the various model and caliper recommendations and especially like hearing the experience from the field.
The last buck I shot was with a 20 ga. slug from a Winchester auto shotgun. Luckily it only ran 50 feet. Unluckily, I was actually turkey hunting and had walked a mile or more back in the woods. Dragging that one out wore me out...
Thanks for the input thus far, still want to learn some more...
All my relatives up in the Pa mountains use rifles and they shoot at deer from 100 to 300 yards. So I don't want to show up with my 20 ga...
