I was wondering....in a SHTF situation (let's ignore the definition for purposes of discussion) - which round is currently more available? On the one hand, 30-06: The great American hunting round. Been with us a long long time. Lot's of hunters out there who if they have one bolt rifle, might have this as the caliber. On the other hand, .308: The military round du jour in 7.62x51. Also with us for quite a while, and also a respectable and common round these days. But in reality, is it still mostly a military/LEO round, with some civilian use? Or has it overwhelmed the 30-06, which has nearly 100 years of market existence? For purposes of discussion, let's ignore the LEO/MIL use; My general consideration is that in SHTF those rounds are generally UNAVAILABLE - because they are in the possession of LEO/MIL. Feel free to add as a caveat if you want... SO my real question: In civilian circles - which would be more available in a forage for ammo situation? (Add "If LEO considered...if you want - but keep it separate.) Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
