I've followed your posts and think a target grade 223 might be your best choice. You've posted in the past about 308 recoil being a bit much. From a heavy target rifle a 223's recoil will be almost non-existant. At least here ammo is much cheaper. The 308 is a better choice for hunting game larger than deer. I'm not sure what you would hunt in Europe, but on animals under 200-250 lbs. a 223 is quite good as long as proper bullets are used.
