Ok so im in between these two calibers. .308 winchester, .300 Win Mag. Im going to be shooting no less than 100 yards. I cannot find any information on the .300 win mag being to powerfull 1) leaving to clean of a hole 2) having to much impact with a hollow point. I know that .308 would be a better choice but i dont care about ammo price (wil be reloading myself). So do i go with the .300 win mag but load less powder or do i go with the factory .308 ammo? i like the .300 win mag myself because of accuracy and power. So this is a hunting rifle but i do like to go to the range and check out my accuracy at far distances so i would like to load up on powder with the .300 win mag when it comes to being at the range and updating my data cheat sheet for scope calculations.
So what do you guys think i should do here, i dont care about price of ammo just need to know of im going to blow a hole the size of a basket ball using hollow points, or soft point will leave to clean of a hole. Also if i do go with .300 over the .308 what should i reload with (hollow points/soft points or somethnig else)? As well what grain should i reload with?
Hunting deer/moose/whitetails mainly (unless a bear try messing around)
Please help me out here
