I'd Pick up the .308 every time. Ammo availability is priority one and the .308 wins hands down. Everything from factory loaded match ammo to 180 nosler partitions. I use the 168 gn. Gold medal match (available at cheaper than dirt for 22$ a box of twenty) and average five shot 2" groups at 500 yds. The rifle is a howa 20" fluted barrel with a 4 x 14 zeiss scope. This weapon system has accounted for over 50 hogs taken off our ranch in the last 6 months. These shots were at ranges between 100 and 800 yds. I highly recommend Ivey scope mounts as they have worked perfectly for me and have 150 minutes of elevation built into them.

Daryl, I was hoping for something in semi auto. Find a scout mount for dads .308 saiga?

I have taken hogs with every thing from a Mach 2 to a 375, its all in bullet placement. Personally I use a AR- 223 with a 36gr Hornady Varmit Grenade by Blackhills and have never had one go over 30ft., most stop in there tracks but this is a 250lber my wife took with her new 6.5 Grendel build last weekend in its tracks at 120yds.

No but from my bow stand in the forhead it dropped like a rock. Wasn't but about an 80lber but it sure ate good. If you need proof I guess I could film the next one if you don't think it's possable and have a few $ to bet. Ofcourse Georgetown isn't that far from my ranch at Luling and you could come down with the $ and see it your self.

Not questioning it, but I would love to go hunting with you
