.308XP

Looking for opinions about te marlin 308express.
How does it compare to a 308 win
I know the ballistics on Hornadys new 140 are about the same as a 150 grain (basic load) out of a 308 win.

GOD is GREAT, BEER is GOOD, & PEOPLE are CRAZY

Re: .308XP

Should be a great round, but..... my only concern would be high price of ammo, and availability of ammo. Especially in the future if this cartridge doesn't take off and is discontinued. If you reload, it probably won't be a major problem for you. If this had been available 35 years ago when I bought my .35 Rem, I would have been very tempted to get one.

I think it is the second coming of the .300 Savage. Wait, that was the .307 Winchester............
