    All things 30cal

    What are all the options for 308 barrel mods ?

    Short action:

    30BR
    308AI - basically pointless ?
    30WSM
    30SAUM
    30-284

    Long action:

    30-338

    I reckon a 7.5x55 Swiss - Basically a 30-284. Pretty sure the 7.5 Swiss would kill stuff deader just because of the cool name

    Naa, I can't stand the little loudners. Haven't owned anything bigger than 30-06, so never needed one.
