Re: Remington 260...The new Sniper rifle?
My 2 cents worth, and it aint much compared to the knowledge of the long rangers in this thread, but I love my 308 and it will be with me for a long long long time. Ease of reloading/components etc. and recoil make the 308 a pleasure to shoot all day long.
Mass, speed, and a slew of other variables all affect the out come of penatration, mushrooming etc. The 260 vs a 308, 243 vs 25.06, pick your debate/discussion. Like discussing which is the best deer rifle, .270 or 30.06?? Or is it the 243 or 25.06 Another can of worms.
The 308 will be around for a long time and will remain a top contender in the military as a work horse and in civilain hands too. To Each their own. Mine is the 308.
