Re: building another lr rig
The 308 is never a bad choice. You can beat it in SOME respects by going down or you can beat it in SOME respects by going up but you cant beat it from every angle. Aside from recoil, and more trajectory (who cares about trajectory any more?) with modern high BC bullets available, when it comes to windage and energy, the 308 can run with and in many cases, out shine the 260 and 7mm08.

308 Gets my vote.
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.
