    My opinion. (again and again...)

    The .300 WM is a one-and-done gun for hunting whatever you want to. For deer and antelope-sized game, you have to choose your bullets and shot placement carefully...

    Not to spark a fight, but in the elk hunting circles around here, we call the .308 a potato cannon. Lol.

    Very much this. Great post from a guy that is clearly speaking from experience.

    In my opinion, if you are going to hunt elk, get the .300 WM. If not, the 6.5 Creedmoor will do everything you need...

    The .30-06 is 100-200 FPS faster than a .308 Winchester in the heavier bullet weights. That matters at longer ranges.

    The Ridge and the Hunter are in the 7.1 to 7.9 range. That is about where you wanted to be to mitigate recoil, isn't it? Mine are cerakoted, not blued.

    Side note. Stainless rifles are great, but...

    In regards to mounts, here are a couple of pics of Talleys. I guess I am not totally sure that there are not pic rail combos out there that would get it just as low. I personally hate having a...

    I use Talley lightweights on my hunting rifles. Keeps the scope lower than pic rail mounts and I have yet to have a scope move in them. I have also not had a set where they were not aligned when...

    My daughter's 6.5 Creedmoor is a Howa and that thing is a copper mine. As is every Savage my wife and I have ever owned, eight in total. The Howa...

    For a hunting scope, A Leupold VX-3i or VX-3HD in 3.5-10x40 can be had for under $500 and would treat you well.

    I personally really like Bergara rifles. I feel like you get a lot more than you pay for in quality and features. Both of mine are shooters. Their B14 series is mostly under $1000 and comes in...

    Watched the live unveil of the Kraken on YouTube for a short spell. The closed emitter optic that was on the Glocks in the foreground appeared huge to me. Admittedly, I only watched about two minutes.

    This is what that exact configuration looks like with a Sentinel in a .160" pocket with the optic turned off. The rear is the 10-8 with a .140" notch, the front is a Dawson .250" x .105"

    Good info. Thank you for that. It is something I was concerned about and didn't have the scientific knowledge to know any different. Figured I would just test it out.

    FWIW, neither the Sentinel nor my HE508t fogged over when subjected to -2F temp, 91% humidity, straight from AIWB carry.
