- You are sitting on a stash for 10,000 plus rounds of surplus .308/7.62 NATO and need to dispose of it. Smart thing to do would be to just sell it and fund a stash of quality 6.5 Creedmoor ammo....
- The firearm you want to get is only available in .308. This is a sad, bitter compromise.
- All you care about is turning money into loud noises and puffs in the dirt rapidly while looking cool on Instagram, so you are all about that steel case Russian poverty grade ammo so you can ramble on about “Muh battle rifle”.
- You are over the age of 60, still don’t trust fuel injection or computers, and like to get day drunk and yell obscenities at children. This is the most acceptable reason to purchase a .308 in the year 2018.
These are the only somewhat plausible reasons I could come up with for why you would buy a .308 firearm in the same timeline that 6.5 Creedmoor exists.
