I like the .308 also. I've got a Remington 700 and it has been a great deer rifle.

either would be enough to harvest deer with the shot placement needed ... but
my choice is easy 308!

Well he already went with his decision but i'll post this anyways to give yall some thought you .308 lovers. I own a .280 what an awesome round! Ever deer I have ever shot has never gone more than 100 yards. With that being said I'll give yall some techincal information and you make the choice for yourselves. After comparing them I'm sorry I didn't get this post in time to the gentleman that wrote this topic. For all you .308 fans cry me a river lol just kidding guys. Also, look at the energy and trajectory comparison. The .280 is on the top and the .308 is on the bottom and both calibers are using the same identical bullet. If you go to http://www.remington.com, then to products tab, then to ballistics you can select almost every caliber and compare them to another caliber. Then you can select each bullet made for the caliber and compare that. its a great tool to use when trying to select a new rifle or just comparing calibers and bullets. Have fun and good shooting!

I have both and both are great. More ammo for the .308 but I think I would rather shoot the .280.
