Nothing wrong with the 308. I think the 30-06 is a little more versatile because of more case capacity and handles heavier bullets better IMO. Some of the tightest groups I ever shot @100 were with a 308. The rifle was a good platform for accuracy testing of loads and bullets. One thing I noticed from the beginning was no matter the load or bullet type, my 308 did not shoot 165, 168 or 180s anywhere near as well as 150/155s. Kind of similar to the way my 270 never shot 150s nearly as well as 130s. Also as would be expected, the monolithics have consistently needed to be one increment of weight less (for length equivalency) to be as accurate as the more conventional cup and core types.
