    I'm a bit surprised that there isn't any mention of a .30cal/AR-10 etc being the go to gun. Everybody seems to be using the smaller faster rounds.

    There's something to be shot with a Thirty. It's just not usually little fuzzy animals or paper and steel targets, those things comprising the majority of what the American public wants to shoot the majority of the time.

    The .30 should never have made it past the Krag as a battle caliber, but because it did due to enormous investment in components already on hand at the time to develop the 1903 Springfield, then the Eddystone, then the M1 Garand...well, the American public got to be kinda enamored with the caliber that won two World Wars.

    That's not nearly the same as saying it was, or is, usually the best choice.

    While some guys load varmint bullets in .308.............they still weigh what? 110 gr?
    Then there's the matter of how well the gun likes them.
    Dunno who offers factory varmint .30 cal ammo (lol, did see some Accelerators recently).

    Varmints.........., grab a .223, .22-250, .243 and go get em.
    Factory ammo of proper bullet can be found easily.

    If one just wants something different...........by all means have fun.

    It is all about shot placement and opportunity.

    Varmint cartridges shoot flat.........which helps in placement and may allow for more opportunity
