  • 7600 .308 vs .223

    I'm tossing up between getting a .308 or a .223

    i prefer the .308 for more punch but the .223 is going to be cheaper on ammo
    the .223 has less recoil allowing me to get back on target faster
    i have both in bolt guns so i can't get a new cal
    if i ever want to swap out the barrel the .223 only has a small amount of chooses where the .308 has a fair few
    it would be used for pigs, goats, dogs and anything that might come in from of me out at my hunting place

    so what do you guys think

    Get the .308, covers you for deer as well.
    I'm in love with Jennifer Hawkins and Alessandra Ambrosio

      Been a pump I would say recoil and re-acquiring target would be the least of your concerns,

      I see the .223 as a useful tool, but the .308 is definitely an all rounder!!

      Reload if ammo is a concern.

      308. Difference in ammo costs are nothing in a hunting rifle, unless you're going through 100's

    Go 308. I have 7615 in 223, as well as 7600 in 308 and 30-06.

    If you want the best performance, get the 22 inch barrel version. 16.5 loses a bit in velocity stakes. Dock a 22 inch to 20 as a good compromise.
