I thought the 300 BO was designed to shoot turtles in ponds?

I'm late to the party, but agree with all the others. My wife shoots 308 and tolerated it fine. I put a muzzle brake on it and she likes it a lot better. It'll get a suppressor soon for the final config. I think suppressed is the way to go for wives and 308's.

I thought the 300 bo was to have an improved mp5?

Anything in an automatic is going to have manageable recoil. .308 is designed to kill large mammals at range. A specific kind of mammal lol but the round doesnít mind what it kills.

If your not shooting subs with a suppressor blk out is kind of pointless. Other stuff does the same thing better

That can be said for many popular cartridges.
