    I know exactly what you mean. Trouble is, I don't know of any place around me that I can shoot over 100 yards. Even that isn't common.

    Ahhh...thats to easy everyone is doing it...lol....go with something different...6mm variants and the 6.5's are where its at....Atleast where im looking for my next bolt gun.....or stay in the 308 realm and do a .260 or 7mm-08 , can make brass out of 308 cases and they have better BC's and are supersonic longer in a apples to apples bullet comparison...

    It could just be the mountain dew..and the fact its real late...as im just rambling......... and failed with no pic..as only bolt gun i have at the moment is a fv-sr .22...lol...

    For the price of the ammo I'm a fan of 7mm Rem mag in bolt guns over .308. But if you don't mind to shell out the money .300 Win mag and .338 Lapua are very cool. I've always wanted a rifle in .50 BMG but will probably never own one. But during the last ammo scare 7mm Rem mag was readily available about every where and doesn't run much more than .308.

    I say .308 because it would be his first bolt gun. A 7.62x51 bolt action precision rifle is almost right-of-passage in a way.

    .260 this, .284 that, .243 blah... There is a solid reason why the military and LEO community sticks with .308. Plenty of ammo, accurate as hell. And if you reload, it's impossible to get it wrong with Varget.

    I will second the 7mm Remington Magnum as an excellent round for starter rifle. The .284 projectile has one of the highest ballistic coefficients of any round out there and it's extremely flat shooting even out to extended long range. You can easily kill big game at 1000 meters with a 7RM and the recoil is fairly light for a magnum. The platform is also great to re-barrel later on into a .338 edge which is ballistically the same as a .338 lapua more or less, without the need for an oversized magnum action.

    A 308 is a great round, but compared to a 7RM its lacking pretty heavily as far as energy is concerned at extended long range. Both are available readily at big box stores, you will have more projectile options in .30 caliber but I have not had any issues finding .284 projectiles over the last few years.

    FBI HRT used 7RM for quite some time and may still use it, its an extremely solid round.
