.308

  1. Glass for an M1A?

    General Gun Related Off Topic Stuff
    A friend of mine is getting a Springfield M1A chambered in .308 and he wants to scope it. Typical shooting conditions won't exceed 100 yards, 200 maximum. I like my Nikon Prostaff 5 2.5-10x40. Simple, clear, variable zoom for closer or further shots and a BDC reticle with the phone app so I...
  2. Muzzle Brake on a .308?

    General Gun Related Off Topic Stuff
    Does anyone here use muzzle brakes on their rifles? I'm just curious about them because Ruger offers an American model that's threaded for a brake and I was thinking about trying it on mine. I'd have to get the die to cut the threads or buy a clamp on brake. Do they really work? Pros and cons...
  3. Mosin vs .308

    Big Game
    Is a Mosin overpowered for whitetails in the New York region? I've always wanted a Mosin and eventually I'll get one but a friend of a friend recommended I get something in .308 because it's more versatile. I didn't plan on buying a Mosin specifically for hunting, but I know it would kill if I...
  4. .45-70 (cast?) bullet for German Roe Deer?

    The 45/70 Govt.
    Hey there, I'm from Black Forest, Germany and i'm very interested in the Marlin leveractions expecially in .45-70 Gov. I search for something special considering the .45-70 and cast bullets. Currently I hunt with my .308 Win with a 110 Grains Barnes TSX loaded at 3100 fps. I`ve tried a lot...
  5. Looking for Hunting/Scout Rifle

    The 45/70 Govt.
    Hey, I currently own a Marlin 336W in .30-30 WIN. I will be stationed at Fort Richardson, AK (Anchorage, AK) for the next three years at least. I am looking for a good do all rifle to both hunt with and target shoot with (scout rifle concept?). I was thinking a .308 or .300 WIN bolt gun, but...
  6. Nov. 30, BIG BOAR!

    Hawg Hunting
    I'm running late posting this, but I'll share anyways! My sister has never really enjoyed hunting like I have, and at one point in time probably considered it a worthless sport. On her recent trip back down to Texas, she showed a lot of interest in shooting. I took her down to the property...
  7. Tactical stock for XL7?

    The Marlin XL7/XS7 Boltaction Centerfire Rifles
    I own the XL7 in .308, and I am very pleased with the rifle and have owned it for over two years, however, I have been unable to locate a tactical stock. Does anyone here know if anyone even manufactures a tactical stock? I know boyds makes a few thumb hole stocks but I don't find them very...
  8. 308 noob questions

    The Marlin XL7/XS7 Boltaction Centerfire Rifles
    First, I apologize in advance for the length of the post. I also know that some of my questions have answers in this very forum, but I am having a bit of 'information overload' and hope I can get some real time help via discussion. Allthough I do not currently shoot, have not for 15 plus years...
  9. The Marlin x7 scout

    The Marlin XL7/XS7 Boltaction Centerfire Rifles
    I have had my xs7 in .308 for awhile now and absolutly love it. Recently, however, I got the amazing pleasure of shooting a friends ruger gunsite scout, and now I have to have one. I believe that the pricetag on the ruger is a little steep for what your getting, I mean at that price I could...
  10. First time rifle owner. Need advice where to find upgrades or what to upgrade?

    The Marlin XL7/XS7 Boltaction Centerfire Rifles
    Bought a Marlin XS7 .308 with a mounted scope today at a gunshow. I am more of a handgun owner but wanted to start using rifles. How do I find "accessories" like a bipod, stocks and other items I would need for this specific model? I know it seems like a stupid question but all of you had to...

So I went and bought a XS7 .308. i went with the .308 for several reasons, #1 it was large enough to kill anything I am going to hunt...
