"Who Needs a .308 Battle Rifle Anyway?!

https://youtu.be/GoLR6BOjcHA

These guys talk about the need of the .308 - 7.62×51 over the 5.56, and come to the conclusion that it's not necessary for a civilian protection weapon ....
In my opinion, I think the 5.56 is all we need, until the SHTF ....
Once that happens, all bets are off, the 5.56 is an excellent backup weapon, but the front lines need a 308, no ifs ands or buts........

  1. Distance is an old fat mans friend. The 308 fits the bill.

  2. Their contention about better ammo counts double for the 308. And half again more for my '06!

    1. I really loved my H-@-K, but the battle was shot out, I think it was surplus, if I was wiser, I'd have rebarrled it, but with a young age comes stupidity !
      But I sold it for more than I payed for it.......

  3. We all know the saying about opinions...and stinking.

    That said if the 5.56 was ALL THAT then the 7.62 would have gone the way of the 30-40 Krag and many other calibers. It hasn't. There are many reasons to consider keeping a 30 caliber rifle in your safe. And those who don't have one when they REALLY need one will be very unhappy...if they survive.

    1. I agree totally, what do the folks in Afghanistan go to when the 556 wasn't enough, the trusty M-14...... Enough said...

    1. 8mm is one hell of a round, my 76 year old K-98 would put a hole through a quarter a few years back with iron sights, but my eyes ai t what they used to be, so I bought a 4-12, I think that'll make up for my sight...
