If you like to shoot, not just hunt, ammo availability and cost can impact your decision. I had two rifles in Weatherby chamberings, 240 and 257 Wby mag, and ammo was very hard to find and always expensive. I do handload but Wby loads to max pressure so it's not always easy to match factory velocities. 308 is available all over the world, probably the #1 cartridge internationally.
