Wow, I'm surprised that the .308 is only at 5%, less than the .243, I would have expected more.

I carry a 30-30 or .308, depending on where I am.

I've hunted with a .243, 32 win spcl, .308, and now my 7mm Rem Mag. I cant get over it for accuracy and awesome knock down power.

Center fire is not legal for Ohio so I use a case less center fire.A Knight in-line muzzle loader in .50 cal. Its good out to 200 yards no problems!

I do wonder why in the heck they don't allow you to use centerfire in alot of places in the east, or in the Ohio valley. A fellow could kill a person as easily with a muzzleloeader as he can witha rifle!
