For God's sake man, why don't you just wear plaid shirts, drink distilled water, and drive a baige Volvo with a bumper sticker that says, "I brake for boring regularity"!!
I mean come on, everyone and their goldfish has a dirty ought six or a 308! Liven it up a little. Yes they are great cartridges, but you gotta have a flair for the stuff grandpa don't have!
No offense to people who have these good cartridges. They definetely are accurate, efficient, and easy to load for, but so are a ton of other cartridges that deserve a look. Don't just settle for what that gun-counter salesmen tries to unload on you! HA, wait a second, I AM a gun salesmen! And from that point of view I can say that I talk to a million people a day that say, "You got any 308's?" and I just yawn and show 'em. But now if a customer comes in and says, "You got any 260's?" he has my attention, and if the customer comes in and says, "which one of these actions is best for doing a 6 BR?" then I am totally fired up! It's the difference between a car salesmen at the Volvo dealer and a salesman at the Ferrari dealer!

Hey, I have a .308 and the wifey has a Volvo!! I also drink lots of distilled water to maintain my regularity! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]
I know a bunch of fellas who are selling their WTHBY magnums and going back to the basics of 30-06, .270, .308 etc. City girls can be fun for a while, but the girl next door will never let you down.
My Army and Marine Corps buddies act as if God secretly made the .308 on the seventh day.
The Weatherby SVM in .308 sounds like a swell purchase!
I'm loving this board and certainly respect everyone's opinion. Good luck with whatever.
