And this is the question ..
is the 308 caliber rifle good enough for Alaska hunting or do i need to pair it with something that is better suited for the Alaska big game up there..
along with what is the propler load for the following animals up there
Sheep or Mountain goats.
I do not plan for hunting any typle of hunting of the Alaska Grizzlies bear for my choice is to leave that animal along if it leaves me alone ..plus along with a heavy caliber back up revolver also will be carried just in case of a short range meeting the two partys and the meeting does not go well ..
For i been reading about the 7 mm or other calibers up there and i was wondering if the standard 308 loaded with 165.grain and the 180 grain should cover every game animal on the list there with the propler loading of the round for hunting..
Also would like your personal ideas about this four rds for the Alaska hunting ..i know they will done in the lower 48 states .but would like ideas about there use for up here..
Nosler Trophy Grade in 168 grain bt hollow point
Hornady Interlock in 168 grain amax
Federal Premium Vital-shock in 168 grain hollow point .
Federal Premium Vital-Shock in 180 grain hollow point .
I am a very big fan of the 168 grain bullet wieght and like for it all around use from diff types of hunting ..
The Alaska moose is the only animal iam worrying about takeing with a 308 cal for i know that it a very big animal and i want to put it down as fast and humanely as possible for the animal
Most of the hunting i plan to do is less then 400 yards a away from the animal when i take the shot ..the goats or sheep area is still got me thinking about a flat shooting rifle set up for them ..i do not know just yet,.
