Is a 308 a good deer rifle. I was at Gander Mountain and they a a Rossi single shot in 308, and it came with a 20 gauge barrel also. I was looking at getting the misses a 20 gauge for some small game shooting, but I don't know a whole lot besides that I can get 308 ammo at next to nothing. I know its not the highest quality rifle out there, but she will only use it a few times a year. I was thinking it would be nice because I could have her use the 308 for deer hunting. Would any of you guys hunt with a 308?
