    And if you are playing Canadian Football, you probably only have another ten yards to score the touchdown.

    It wouldn't matter the threat would be over and I could stroll down to see what goodies I just won.

    Talking .308 and 7.62x39 at 100 yrds?


    both will do the job.
    Both are awsome rounds at 100yrds.
    They can take a target out easy at 100yrds.
    both will not create an arc or a significant bullet drop at 100yrds.

    so, my question is why are you asking?

    Also, are you going to have different wind directions between 0 to 100yrd?
    are you going thru brush? or are you going to try to fire thru a barracade?
    or are you going to shoot multiple targets? or just one?

    it depends. :) but if I had to shoot at 100 yrds to save my life against multiple targets I would probably use a semi-auto. 308 and then a 7.62

  8. Excellent point salt havint figured that senerio out for the 308 but any AK rifle for 7.62

    Guess it would depend on the size of the target. If man size it wouldn't matter, but if it's a beer can I'll go with the 308

    Lemme see now.....if I only had one shot and had to choose between a .308 or a 7.62x39.....hmmmm.....

    Got it! I'd take 10 shots with a .338 Lapua! That's also equipped with a grenade launcher. And SEAL Team 6 backing me up. And I'm inside a bunker. Yup, that's it. That would be my choice based on the original question.

    100 yds? Depends on the situation. If I'm in a defensive role rather than attempting an offensive play, I'd employ the tactical duck-n-weave as I beat-feet away. Or I'd belly crawl if need be. Yeah, I know, but at least I'd more likely to live and fight another day.

    If offensive, the .308 due to most rifles using that caliber would be more accurate than most that use the 7.62 x 39. (notice the word "most").
