Re: Lead and Molly coated bullets

I am going into the military after college i am on a ROTC scolarship. I thought i would go with a 300 win mag becasue i could buy light grain rounds for deer and heavier stuff for elk, but if i ever got stationed up to alaska or some place where the game is a liitle bigger then i wouldn't have to be buying another rifle...but i guess whats the fun in that.
From what i know a 308 doesn't have as much power behind the bullet as say a 30-06 but it is more accurate, is that correct?
Whats the Barrel wear on a 300 win mag?

Your right in that the 308 has less power than the 30-06 and 300Win mag and in most cases it's a little more accurate in factory guns with factory ammo but all three have won 1000yd matchs so the potential is their , if your gonna be doing a fair amout of hunting for bigger game than deer then I'd say the 300mag is a good choice
