    Not having much actual knowledge or experience with either, but just going off numbers....definitely 308. Helluva round.

    300 Win Mag is best for over medium to long range, and 908 for short to medium.


    All is up to you. The Win Mag is more spensive to shoot.



    The Italians have a saying. "Keep your friends close and your enemies closer." And although they've never won a war or mass-produced a decent car, in this area they are correct.

    Didn't you build one of your AR's as a medium range gun?

    If so, I think this makes the question clear. Do a .300wm. The effective range of the 300 is further than the 308.

    I'm a little biased though.



    This is my project. It's still waiting on a new trigger and then a Mcmillan A5 stock.

    I started with a 700 pss. I had the muzzle brake put on by a company called Golden Eagle Tactical in Texas.

    It's currently wearing Leupold Mark 4 bases and rings with a 8.5-25x50 Mark 4 scope with an illuminated reticle.
    The bipod is a Harris.

    Next on the list is a trigger and Mcmillan A5 stock. I'll probably go with the badger magazine option and then have the badger bolt handle put on.

    After that is finished, I'll look into an aftermarket barrel.

    The muzzle break threads are nice since I want to add a suppressor at some point.
