Seems you may have already made your choice.Both will kill deer, and yotes.Just that a .308 will kill them a little more...

Picked up a Venture in .308 a few weeks ago at Grices, I don't think you will be disappointed.

Alrighty then!

Last I checked there are no degrees of dead. Dead is dead.

Why take a kid to an adult game, get the .308.
