This will be my first year hunting and I have a DPMS AP4 308 Win that I will be using. Is that too much rifle? I just want a clean kill. Something that doesn't just injure the animal and leave it in pain, but also, something that doesn't knock a softball sized hole through it either.
308 is perfect for whitetails.
viking thats fine not gonna annihalate the deer at all. hypethetically there isnt a firearm that could put a hole that big that is legal.
Well...50BMG very well could put a hole that big through a deer.
