I know this topic has probably been wore out. I really want the 6.5....... but the thing that keeps pulling me to the 308 is you can get ammo for it anywhere. I believe overtime the 6.5 will be that way, but as of now the 308 leads in ammo. But on the other hand, are they pretty equal on killing deer? I know the 308 is bigger..... but the 6.5 has great sectional density for great expansion and penetration. The gun would also be used for 500-600 yard plinking. Thoughts? Will either caliber drop a deer and if not even flinch like I’ve read the 7mm-08 does?
