Re: Making A Case For The 308 Winchester By Michael Eichelle
The .308 Winchester has killed everything from the Taliban to grizzly bears. Mine is a Howa 1500 Varmint supreme. When I set up this rifle, its intended purpose was a budget F class rifle. It served that purpose very well. When I developed an interest in hunting I didn't have the funds to put together a hunting rig. As A result, I went hunting with my target rifle and my match load. Since then my .308 has harvested a 250 pound pig with a 175 grain Berger VLD over 44.6 grains of N150. When I take to the hunting fields, nothing that walks on four legs is safe if I have the skill to put the bullet where it needs to go. Now I have the financial means to put together a dedicated hunting rig, all the pieces and parts are up for debate. The caliber is set in stone. It will be a .308 winchester.
