308 with Nikon scope
.223: It's not just for varmints anymore. With heavy bullets, 80 or 90 gr. you could go 1000 yds. Also, short actions are stiff and more rigid= more accuracy. A 308 cal short action is better than the same rifle in long action. BTW most PD snipers engage their targets at less than 100yds.huntinghawk said:This forum is sniper city so most want long action for long range shooting. What you mention is small varmit shooting.
