Been wanting to ask some questions for a while. Bit scared to be honest because there is usually some harrassment thrown for asking calibre questions! Cant find anything specific to what I want to read so here goes! Right then! I own a .308 but I am looking for something bigger to use on the continent and Boar over here. I am torn between 300 win mag and the 30.06. I like the idea of the win mag as it would do everything the 08 and .06 can do by the sounds of it plus a bit more, but also reading and hearing that its loud as anything,kicks like a mule,and can be a bit much on the carcass damage front! The reports on the .06 seem great and I think would suit me down to the ground but dont want to be sorry for not going down the win mag route! All info appreciated, thanks guys, Tim.
