What's very interesting about this whole argument, is that GK is acknowledging the better performance of the .308 over the .223. He can confidently use the .308 for general situations, but can only use the .223 to brain animals. braining is a requirement because the .223 doesn't perform as well as the .308.andy said:no, stupid, it's not a REPLACEMENT for the CAR-15.you can't READ.It's specifically for HUNTING big gamethere,while I learn their habits, before I go on to brain one of each species with the 223, and also take one of each species with the 460 Rowland. It's a SPECIALTY item
He has to make up for the marginal performance of the .223 with brain shots, where the .308 has enough utility, power, and penetration to not rely on brain shots to get the job done.
yet it's the specialty item because it is more reliable (whole point of the argument) can be used with more confidence (doesn't require brain shots to be effective), and the .223 that evidently can only work if brain shots are involved is not the specialty item.
Interesting argument there sparky.
