Until then, I plan to find some private land where we can set up a target.
New hunters are usually new shooters as well, and the recoil of 300 Win Mag is a lot: enough to give new hunters a bad flinch and keep them from a great trigger pull.
At under 300 yards, which is where pretty much all game gets taken anyways, the 308 is just fine.
Cost : The most inexpensive rifles, such as the.Savage Axis, are not available in 300 Win Mag.The image at 24X is total garbage, as you might expect for 100.First, the rifle needs more stability.308 left, 300 win mag moet and chandon gifts right.Adding some lead weight to the forearm and buttstock will correct the weight issue.Barrel Life : A 308 barrel can be expected to last for 2-3 times the number of shots fired compared with a 300 Win Mag.Recoil in a 308 is usually around 12 or 13 ft-lbs, while its 20 ft-lbs in a 300 win mag.Facebook or,, view all posts by Adriel Michaud 308 vs 30-06, bunkerHead Face Mask Review.The barrel was accurate and the upgraded trigger was a pleasure.
If cost and recoil keep them from shooting their rifle at the range a lot, thats going to hurt marksmanship skill as well. .
300 Win Mag vs 308, long range hunters and experienced hunters taking Elk and Moose at longer ranges may appreciate and require the better terminal performance of the 300 Win Mag.
The 300 Win Mag can put the same energy on target at out to 600 yards, nearly twice the distance.With a few tweaks (like throwing out the scope) the "1000 Yards for 500" Axis should perform perfectly well in the 1, 000-yard match.Magazine Capacity : Almost always higher in a 308 compared with a 300 win mag rifle.I know the premise was to prove the rifle's effectiveness at 1, 000 yards, but unfortunately I had a nasty reaction to antibiotics the night before the BIG match at Tulsa's Red Castle Gun Club.As for the rounded forearm, I can either flatten it or start using a bipod.What 308 and 300 Win Mag are both great at 308 and 300 Win Mag are both great for taking big game in North America.While we're on the subject of the scope, the Simmons 44 Mag was a real pain to look through.Overall I would call the project a success.Speed and Trajectory : The big difference here is that the 300 win mag will send a 180 grain bullet, which is at the top end of the 308s abilities, at almost 3000 fps.
Overall the rifle performed well, but as I shot it became evident that I need to make a few improvements.
