I will follow up later on this.
Would that be the 450 Bushmaster or 458 SOCOM?

Re: Velocity or Energy

Cheers guys, at the ranges i shoot i don't really see a huge differance in a 7mm08 over .308. As stated you can load light bullets in a .308, can't load heavy bullets in a 7mm. Trajectory may be better out over 500 but that means little to me.
