after all the back and forth (on an American forum) about which lever gun and whether new or used, finding the hornandy 30-30 ammo (only 30-30 that meets the Germany requirement for pigs), yadda yadda... I (SWMBO) decided I am getting a BLR (Browning Leveraction Rifle) for Christmas... At the moment, I have a like new condition used in .308 with a nice Kahles scope on a local auction. If I don't get it, I'll be getting a new one.
??? is, I already have a mauser in 30.06 that I am real happy with, just want a lever gun (back to the roots yaknow).... Should I get the BLR in 30.06 and keep one ammunition? Or, is the .308 soooo much better of a choice? This'll be the last gun I buy (unless maybe a small caliber sometime).... shots well inside 300 yards (<150 the norm)pigs and roe deer... pushin 50 years and not getting younger. Stick to the .06 or is .308 gonna make me happier down the road?
