  1. Ruger Gunsite Scout or Something Else? General Purpose Rifle

    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    Hi all! I am thinking about pull the trigger on a Ruger Gunsite Scout .308 18" stainless (Model 6822). The reason why I am posting this is just to see if I am missing anything out there that is better than the GSR for what I need, before I drop almost a grand on it. My use case for this rifle...
  2. Kimber Longmaster in .308

    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    Looking for some info on Kimber's longmaster in 308 and a scope to match it. I mainly punch paper and steel plate out to 300 yards. I spent this past weekend shooting a few bolt action rifles in .223 and 308, they we're pretty basic rifles, but it really gave me the needed bump to make a new...

  4. millett or Nikko stirling?

    Rifle, Shotgun and Handgun Scopes
    Hello, I'm looking for an extremely low budget scope, but a scope that can still hold a decent zero, with the tactical look to it. I've narrowed down my two scopes to a Nikko stirling target master 4-16x44 and a millett trs-1 4-16x50. I'll be putting this on a 308, planning to shoot maybe a 3...
  5. 243 or 308?

    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    I am going to buy a Mossberg 100atr from bass pro, but I can't decide if I want a 243 or 308 for decently long range shooting, probably max of 600-800 yards. I don't hand load and don't like to spend a lot on high end ammo, but I just want to know which round is best for shooting at least 2"...
  6. 308 or other?

    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    I am currently looking for a new target rifle. I will be shooting at distances up to 700 yards.(longest range in the area). I am not new to shooting but my experience is with closer range. Is the 308 the way to go or is there a smarter option? Cost is a factor but not a driving force.
  7. Finicky New .308

    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    I just bought my first Savage and am having some issues with it so I thought someone here may have some insight. I purchased a Savage Trophy Hunter XP in .308 with a Nikon 3x9 BDC. I took it to the range to sight it in, before which I thourougly cleaned it, and took my first shot at 100 yards...

  11. Best .308 for under $800?

    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    What is the most accurate .308 with a 26'' bull barrel for under $800? I plan to do long range shooting out to 800 yds I have an excellent 22-250 that I can shoot .25" groups with at 100yds but past 600 it does not have enough energy. Any and all advice will be appreciated thanks.

  14. Opinions needed, Howa 1500 Ranchland Compact

    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    Been looking for a rifle for my niece, the Howas weren't even on my radar, but I looked at a couple of them at a gun shop the other day. I really liked how it looked, felt, and shouldered, and the price was pretty good, too :-). Trigger seemed pretty decent, but that can and probably will...

    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    My wife is looking for a hunting rifle, something not too expensive and that doesnt say Remington on it. She will be using it for elk and Nilgai. Anything smaller she will use her bow. Gun is probably going to be used maybe twice a year. She is looking at the Howa 1500 in .308. She doesnt...
  16. 30 caliber vs .308

    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    I know this is a dumb question, but here goes: I have seen references to both 30-06 and 7.62mm NATO as being .308. Yet 7.62mm equates to exactly .300 inch or 30 caliber. Is the .008 allowance for a snug fit in the 30 caliber barrel? If not, why is 7.62mm NATO also referred to as a .308? Thanks.
  17. .223 or .308? Help me decide!

  19. Any feedback on Ruger compact 308?

    Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    Wondering if anyone has info on the 16.5" barrel 308? Seems kinda short, but nice little gun. Slip on recoil pad could improve on the 12.5" LOP. Fire breathing dragon? Too short of a barrel? I sure like the weight and compact concept. Considering buying one.
