Question on good hunting rifle
I have always been a target shooter, but am looking to start doing some hunting, preferrably deer/bear. I have a friend that goes and he suggested a .308 rifle as a good all-round hunting caliber.
My dilemna is that I have a Socom 16 with scope, but obviously this is not a typical hunting rifle. I really would like to not have to dish out another $500 for a new rifle, so will my current rifle work? Any other suggestions?
