Hi all, first post
Have been lurking here for a few days checking it out.
Anyone have a particular opinion on a .308 or 7mm-08 target rifle? I mostly do 300 yard to 700 yard target shooting, things like 2-liter soda bottles and motor oil bottle sized stuff and paper at times (we shoot out on a friend's farm). With the random groundhog thrown in whenever the chance occurs. The 500+ yard targets tend to be some uphill shots at our place though, so some compensation is necessary.
I'm somewhat experienced with the 7mm, as I have a 7mm Magnum that I inheirted and a 7mm RUM that I purchased myself. Both of them are pretty nice shooters but punishing to shoot more than a dozen times or so (and the RUM needs to cool off ever 2 or 3 shots). Plus I just want something different
From what I can tell, these two rounds are nearly identical and it's pretty much a coin toss as to which is better, is this much true?
I'm thinking a Rem Model 700 SPS varmint, or maybe the VLS (bull barreled varmint
. Is the money on the VLS worth the upgrade over the SPS varmint? That fluted barrel CDL SF sure looks pretty though, but I'd hate to scratch it
Thanks for any opinions guys!
