I am definitely in this camp. Especially if you deer hunt, the .308 is in a class by itself, when trying to compare it to the other rifle calibers you metioned.
There is a reason the government kept it around soooo long after the introduction of the "Black Rifle", IT(the .308) put the enemy DOWN for the count for good.
