Callin all gun enthusiests (fanatics)

308 vs 30-06, 30-06 vs 308.
I shoot a 30-06. To me, that is plenty of gun.
Friend, new to deer huntin, is buying a rifle.
He is down to these two choices.
308 would shoot flatter I expect but what about
knock down power?
Look Further
If your friend doesn't mind paying a little more for ammo, tell him to look at a Rem 280. When you compare the ballistics of the three calibers mentioned, I believe he will be impressed with the 280.
308 has shorter action than a 30-06. 30-06 amo can be found at just about any mom and pop store.
