It is one of the most purchased and used calibers of all time.... what does that tell you.

And it is good enough for anything on this continent. Including Elk......

Time tested with thousands of kills. Plus you might be able to get a lot of military surplus ammo cheap for busting targets.

I just bought a Browning A-bolt stainless hunter in .308. I also have a target rifle VTR in .308 but never hunted with it. I was just wondering on how it performed in the game hunting world. Thanks for your replies!!

The .308 Winchester is one of the best hunting rounds for a whitetail deer.

The .308 has been around for years and years. I've heard it put like this: "If it's good enough as a NATO military round, then itsure as heck can "wear civvies" and take any game animal on the continent." [8D]

One word to define a .308 on whitetail deer - Sweet.
Wehave used a .308 and have been sucessful from 20-150 yds with the deer never taking another step.
No blood trail to rack, no deer running wounded through the woods.

Practice and more practice, plus being confident in your shot is paramount.
