.308win vs 7mm-08

I have noticed .308 factory rounds are few dollars cheaper than 7mm-08. Though looking at the federal fusion charts, 7mm-08 out performs the .308 a bit. What is your opinion between the two, and which one of these 2 rounds you prefer?

Inside of 300 yards, you nor the game you shoot will no any difference whatsoever. I do not like a 7-08. If I choose a 7mm, I want something with more powder. Can't really explain it. I have a 308 and love it.

Exactly.

My stand is that you cannot spank the 308 with ANY other bullet fired out of the same case. You may get a wee bit better wind drift or a wee bit less drop but they are still in the SAME catergory. If you love 7mm bullets go with a 7-08. If you love 30 cal bullets go with the 308. If youre looking to out do the 308 with a 7mm bullet or any other bullet look to a BIGGER case.

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.
