Re: Another new guy with a .308

I agree with BB, try some federal gold medal match 168. This will inform you of your rifles potential. I also agree with others......trigger job, float the stock and bed it if you cannot afford to upgrade the stock. The 308 is a fine 600 yard deer rifle.

Good luck and welcome!

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