    Well as far as a rifle I have a Remington 700 vtr. I use it just for deer hunting and my shots are 200 yds or less. With that in mind I use Fusion ammo.

    Ok thanks, I'm just getting back into bolt actions (haven't used one since boy scouts lol) and picking up a Ruger American this week. I have some Magtech ordered to try out, think it was 150gr.

    I went a different direction this time. I bought a FNAR. First auto hunting rifle I have owned. Used to fill my cull doe tags last year. 3 shot, 300+ yds, 3 does

    I had always had the impression that semi auto hunting rifles were 3 or 4 inch spray and pray grouping rifles. I can tell you the FNAR hold 100yd groups to 3/4" outside to outside.

    Here is the FNAR in with the EOTech. I use it for pig hunting at night (legal in Texas). Tumps the pigs right over

    Bolt-actions.
    Savage 10FP for target, using Federal Gold Medal Match 168gr.

    Remington model 7 for hunting, wife use Remington reduced recoil 125gr. Winchester power point 150gr is fine for me.

    I prefer a good auto over a bolt for 308. My current rifle is a POF 308


    And with the aimpoint. It also serves very good for cqb distance.

    IMO, owning a centerfire rifle & not handloading for it is almost wasting your time, certainly your money. Few factory loads can beat good handloads for accuracy as every rifle has a preference. I used to have a M700 VSS, rebarreled it to 260AI, sold a FAL way back when & a G91, so only an M1 left in 308.

    Since this is "caliber corner" I'll assume that you meant type of round as opposed to type of rifle. I generally shoot plain-jane 150gr soft point since that is my go to deer round. I have several other loadings in my stash of .308 that I do want to give a whirl: 168gr bthp, and some vintage 173gr national match.

    One day I'll get into reloading, I promise...

    This is the one. Nothing groups tighter among the factory loadings.
