Re: stepping down from 300 mag to 308 5r remington
I agree completely. I am doing the exact same thing. I had a 300WSM that I fussed with and fussed with. It shot good, but the powder usage and other variables just put me into the decision to go back to the .308. I will be using 208 A-max for the long shots on bigger game and 178 Hornady BTHP for varmint and target. Can't wait to get the new barrel screwed on. Good decision!
P.S. My cousin has a Lapua we can use for the really looooong shots! ;)
