My thoughts on the subject after reading someone say the .308 is not good enough for grizzly bear. Too many people are falling for the magnum craze and not paying attention to the ballistics and the situations that THEY hunt in.... not many people need a a Magnum rifle to go out and go hunting, after all up until Smokeless power was created they hunted everything from elephants and grizzly bear to rabbits with just Black Powder Firearms. Do I have you Yet ? My thoughts on this thread (and this coming from a lover and shooter of the .338 win mag) is that people are putting to much emphisis on horse power and not enough on technique and practice..... a .308 you could shoot all day at the range, with the .338 I shot a box of 20 and I am ready to quit.
