    So i have decided that the most price appropriate option for me is a bolt action rifle. I like the .308 and .30-06 for their avilability and performance. I was long considering a Ruger American Rifle, but they are selling faster than ruger can make them. I have been considering the Remington...

    Looking at ballistics I see that the .243 has much less drop than the .308, would that also mean that the .243 is more accurate? This would mostly be a rifle used to hunt white tail. I have heard that the .243 will cause more damage to edible meat due to the higher velocity, would it really...
