Oh come on now Phillipe'....It can't be THAT bad. Just throw you a 8-32x56 Nightforce on there and you'll be able to see for sure.

    Yeah, tell me about it...

    Anyway, moving back on to the .308 Win....It is a great caliber, and a classic deer huntig round.

    I surely like mine (308) for bambi's.

    Do'in my part this year to keep 'em off your bumper....

    (at less than 500 yards of course).... Actually, much less around here. A l.ong shot is 100 yards, most at 50 or less. Hard to miss actually.

    ...Back in the day (not too long ago), actually a year ago, if I wanted a new shooting piece, I went and bought a new shooting piece and ordered a fancy scope and all the fix'ins....

    Now, I have to save up for a new shooting piece and the fix'ins have to wait too,.....



    Maybe I can get a Bridge Card....

    After a certain point it seems like more magnification, just makes the blurs bigger.

    Careful boys. While I agree with your sentiments we need to adhere to our host's rule about political discussions. They can wreck a good natured forum in a hurry plus with this being a firearms oriented site he probably gets a lot more scrutiny from various federal agencies than he'd like already.

    As for the .308 it's far more than adequate for the job.

    The Op isn't using my choice of bullets for game but that combo will definitely kill deer quite effectively at the ranges and velocities being discussed.
