One thing I like about '06 is that is seems to be able to shoot a wide range of bullet weights. Since .308 is basically a shortened '06? might the same hold true for it?

I remembered ratassassin had done some playing around with lighter bullets with great results quite some time back. Here is the link, and you may want to contact him and see if he could help you. Good luck.http://www.californi...showtopic=21179

My Howa heavy barreled .308 shoots 125 grain Speer TNT's in about 6/10ths of an inch at 100 yards. And it shoots the Sierra Varminter 110 grainers about that accurate, too. Fun low recoil fast loads.

My favorite thing about the 06 is that you can shoot anything from 110-220gr bullets. You can even go lighter if you want to play around with Sabots, then you can use .223 bullets
