    Trades on a Tikka .308

    Anyone interested in trading for a Tikka .308 for something more suitable for my preferred style of hunting like a .270,7mm08 or something magnum

    if you were going for a 7mm08 the 308 is close enough to do exzarkerly the same thing. now 270, 7mm rem mag etc, that's a little different

    Yes csmiffy is right. You need to move up to a WSM or a proper magnum to make a switch worth while.

    270 is a step back from a 308

    7mm rem mag would the way to go. Heaps of rifles to choose from, heaps of factory ammo, lots of really great projectiles for hand loading. 270 wsm is far more limit in all regards.

    If you want better for long range then 7mm08, 270 etc is just a sideways step really. They each have their own benefits but only minor. Look at a magnum or something like 284 / 280 for more range.
