I made up my mind to get a lightweight 308 stalking rifle. 2.9kg + roedale mod + 6x42 Zeiss scope. Ready to start at 3.6kg.
Has anybody made up 308 ammo with the 130 grain Barnes TSX ? I know there is the 123 grain Sako round, but I like a bullet wich can break both shoulders of a red deer and still only have an exit wound from 2 or 3 times calibre size. I might get the Sako ammo for training and even for Hinds, but I like a good strong bullet for use on game. The 308 with these light bullets seems almost as flat shooting as a 270. How flat can you get the 150 grain bullets shooting in a 308? This compared to the 270.
