The Remy 700 in .308 is where its at on hogs. It doesn't matter where you hit'em with a .308, they're going down! I have a Savage .308 as my back up rifle...
Well I know the .223 can do the job, and I will probably use it a couple of times, but more power never hurt anyone... except Tim Taylor.
Well I don't want to get pistol close! I actually want to work on some 100+ shooting which I have never done before. Good to know the .308 is potent though!
Alexander Arms is the only one who makes the Beowulf .50 upper.
But - and this is a big hairy cheeks spread bent over and wailing like a bitch but...Ammo is nonexistent right now. If you reload, you MAY be able to get some brass. But if you want assembled cartridges, good luck.
A buddy ordered a full rifle back in February and 2 boxes of .50 334g cartridges. The rifle he had within a few weeks. Last Friday (9th) was when he finally recieved his two boxes of ammunition. He still has a case on order, but there is no clue on delivery. We think he may get it late 2011.
I have a little over 100 rnds of the .50 in various flavors but I haven't seen anything in months so I'm careful with what I use it for. Over 250? The .50. anything less and I pull out the .454.
I may be in the market for a lever action 45-70 govt or .338 as a saddle gun that has a more plentiful ammunition supply.
Well, that is really good to know right now, I appreciate the heads up. Wouldn't do me much good this hunting season to get one.
It is issues like that that have me leaning toward .308, I think ammo will be easier to find. Bud's has some really good prices on Remington 700's, but I have never shot one, so I am not 100% sure that is what I want. I assume it would be less recoil than a 30-06, which was not a problem when I had that, so I should be ok.
This is what I am looking at, add rails, rings, and glass and I would be good to go.
