    WTB/S

    I just bought a new Savage model 14 blued in 7mm-08, problem is that I wanted a .308.

    Anyone got a Savage .308 barrel lying around? Might even swap brand new barrel. Don't care too much if stainless or blued

    If it ends up being too much hassle I'll just buy some ammo for it.

    Far be it from me to belittle the best caliber in the world but...
    Why would you change from 708 to 308?

    I very very nearly bid on that rifle, nice bargain.

    (I'm assuming you only bought it 45 mins ago )

    You already got a Savage .308? I can see it there in your avatar! Branch out a little, variety is the spice of life.
    Might have to buy different ammo but its only for the bush.

    Yup it's the one off Trademe. $570 shipped, pretty happy with that! Now which one of you bastards kept pushing the price up?!

    I want .308 because I already reload for it and have hunting ammo already. Sadly my supply of .223 hunting ammo won't be to accurate in it I reckon.

    As for the ballistic differences between 7-08 and .308, I couldn't really care less, they will both drop deer out to 500m.
