IMO the perfect stable of precision calibers looks like this;I'm a 6.5 Creedmoor kind of guy, but this thread certainly has my curiosity piqued. Stainless T3x Lites are so cheap in .300 WM and WSM. It would be a hunting rifle only to supplement my T3x Lite 6.5 CM. I really don't need one, but dang...
And either a 375 Cheytac or a 37XC..............< One day I'll get around to this.
Oh you read a lot of ballistic charts. Yeah well I keep looking for the butthurt 308 owner coefficient on the ballistic chart for my 6.5CM and I can't find it. Whatever the number is I'm sure it's off the charts because there's a lot of chapped 308 owner's asses out there over the caliber.Total pansies. I read more ballistics charts in a typical day than they do all year so I win
Relax guy, drop that blood pressure down a little bitOh you read a lot of ballistic charts.

I think the mount mine is in has 25 MOA and the scope is the 34 MIL version and that combe gives me 25 MIL's I can dial.My first one... I shot it yesterday.. the axsr it's on has a 20 moa rail, I still need 17.5 mils to get on target @ 200 yards. Seems a bit high, no other S&B I have required that much... typically it's 6 to 8 mils. How is yours? It's in a eratac adjustable mount that I can add up to 70 moa to, it's currently on 0 moa.
Nobody is more helpful than the people of the Hide.What I find absolutely amazing about threads like this is that people cannot help themselves. I am the blasphemer that mentioned the 6.5 man-bun in the context of the fact that I would like to get a wsm or WM, and instead of welcoming me to the tribe, I am treated to almost a solid page of phenomenal memes.
I love this place.
That’s not a stock rifle, and the 300 PRC holds more powder. In stock form a 300WM cannot outperform a 300PRC, or launch a 250 grain 880g1 BC bullet without poking the bullet down in the powder column and wouldn’t stabilize it anyways. I have both calibers-just stating facts. No silly belt either. Someone said mark and Sam got higher velocity out of the win mag-not possible-PRC holds more powder. I like my win mag but it is supplanted by my PRC.Depends on your chamber. I have a Criterion match barrel on mine and it allows me to seat 225 ELD-M bullets to just shy of 3.700” without jamming. Getting 2860 and could good higher but I’m happy with this load, it’s a hammer.
308 is obsolete?? Someone better get on the horn to LITERALLY every ammo manufacturer and tell them the news....Well, do I? I mean I own some "obsolete" calibers like the 308 and a caliber .30, model of 1906.
But I don't have any magnum rifle calibers. Should I buy one?
