Re: 308 Rifle
This american is also partial to the 308 win. It is truly an amazing round for its size. Its also VERY accurate.
If I were in the market for a new 308, I would concider the Savage 10FPLE2B or the Remington 700 PSS, VS, VLS, or the VSSF. They have all historically performed exceptionaly well.
Once again, welcome aboard.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
