>>...I like to shoot beyond 600 yards and...I am interested in hunting elk and moose, eventually. So I am thinking of a .308...<<
No offense, but your post is incredibly naive to the point of being suspect as a troll.
Would you share how/what led you to believe a .308 is suitable for elk and moose!? As for the long distance shooting, I hope that’s just targets and not game at those distances.
Thanks for my second biggest laugh on this thread.

Excuse me but your reply to rabidralph shows that you are the naive one. 30-06 and 308 have been dropping Elk and Moose for years. In fact when I was a boy I knew Colorado Elk hunters who used a .30-30 with the 170 grn bullet and killed elk every year with them.
As for his shooting at 600 yards he has already explained that and if you had really read his original comment you would know he wasn't talking about taking game at 600 yards.

HAHAHAHAHA! CAN I CALL 'EM OR NOT?! WHAT DID I SAY? (See my post 63.) Oh, man, it's good to be right. Didn't realize we were going to have to wait 'til post 176 until one Freeper accused another of being a troll, but it finally happened, just as I predicted. I love being right. (sigh of contentment)
Okay, the next thing you have to do is trade insults with the other guy for about 20 posts each. Hit "abuse" a few times and accuse each other of being secret Romney supporters, 9-11 Truthers, illegal immigrant supporters, and soft on Islam. When the mods tell you to knock it off, tell them something really rude and get banned for a few days. At that point you can either cool off and apologize or you can join the Clown Posse and make snarky bitter remarks about JimRob.
heheheheh. Thanks for the heads up, Daffynition. You made my evening.
