    Hi All
    I was looking at a 7mm-08 wetherby the other day with black synthetic stock and he was only after 300 (i think) but i will stick with my 308

    any of the 7mms are a good choice for all deer species and can double as a boar calibre as well, the 7.08 becoming more mainstream as well.

    I'm a pretty good advocate of most all of the 308 based cartridges !

    I like the 243 WIN , 260 REM , 7mm-08 REM and 338 Federal . I can even now to a lesser degree live with the 308 WIN .Had a 358 WIN or two and I'm not so hot on that one , for me the 338 Federal is a better cartridge then the 358 WIN .

    But for general deer usage I think it's hard to beat the 7mm-08 REM and 260 REM .

    Like many I used the .243 and 308 for years and in truth can't fault them however I changed the barrel on my 308 to 7mm-08 a few years ago just so I could use it in France and for no other reason. Since then I have never looked back and shoot everything up to some very big Reds here in Suffolk. It's accurate, comfortable to shoot and plenty of gun for our UK needs and more. I wouldn't change it for anything. I also use a 6.5x55 but my 7mm-08 is the favourite as far as calibre goes. You wouldn't be disappointed.
