I’m in that camp as well. 7-08 is the obvious performer.

The only objective argument for 308win over 7-08 is largely non-sequitur. 308win has broadly available, low cost and surplus type ammo, not available for the 7-08… so if a guy is just blasting, 308 can be cheaper to feed. So if you actually care about performance, you wouldn’t be using that cheap ammo anyway, at which point, the 7-08 leaves the 308win behind. But 308win DOES offer cheaper ammo options not available for 7-08… Not terribly consistent ammo, but objectively and demonstrably cheaper.

But within the context of long range shooting, as proposed by the podcast, neither are terribly favorable, but 7-08 spanks the 308win with ease.
