Re: interested in rechambering a .308win, any interesting wildcats?
OliverAlan, just keep your 308 just like it is. Someday you will appreciate the great little cartridge it is. Spend the modification money on another rifle like a 300 Win mag or 300 Weatherby, 300 rum. For the long range your espousing to you should look into a 338 Rum or a 338 /edge. It will reach out to where you want to shoot with authority. By the time you learn to shoot that far (1000yds) like your talking you will think nothing of the recoil. I really think your fool hearty wanting to shoot deer at 800 yds. That's not hunting, that cripples more game than it ever takes. You will need years of practice to get proficient at that yardage.
Learn more about what that little 308 is really capable of, it would really surprise you. The military snipers don't use the 308 because it don't kick enough they use it because it kicks ass.
