Thread: 308 rifles popularity

    308 rifles popularity

    Are 308 rifles so popular that everyone keeps a hold of theirs and hence few ever come up for sale?
    Looking through the adds here and on other forums, it seems that the good old 308 is a keeper. ...

    ??

    Have look on Guntrader - there are masses.

    Though that is also an indicator of popularity - the numbers for sale are a pretty accurate proportional sample of the total number in use.

    I like it so much I have 2

    It's a no nonsense, does what it says on the tin in a very competent fashion.
    There are loads for sale but good rifles in good nick go quickly.

    Took a little while to warm to the calibre but now I don't see me getting rid. Loads of bullet choice to mess about with on the loading bench. Every one should try one at least. Be careful though as you'll have to be very creative to convince your FAO the need for 7.

    Should I ditch the .243 and get one?

    The reason I ask is I love the .243 but have an 8 x 60. Would the .308 fill a gap I didn't know I had? I got the .243 as plod originally said that was all I could have. I have grown to love the calibre and it does all I need from it. Got the 8 mm now for bigger stuff.

    Serious question chaps.
