To be honest after wading through the BS on this thread, it matters little which one is recommended in the end. As the OP has stated, he just wants a new rifle and who are we to discourage that line of thought? In fact, this whole site is built on guys buying new stuff and bragging or bagging on it all day long...

My thought is- if you're wanting to get a new rifle, why limit yourself to the two you suggested as they are so close in performance for all intended purposes? Looking around for something a little different that would still get the job done would be the route to take if it were me. Define your needs for the rifle- shooting pop cans at 50 yards? or 500 yards? Hunting at 150 yards? or 1500 yards? Do you reload? How far do you want to carry it all day long? And, probably the most important factor- how much do you want to spend?

No need to bring the discussion to this site if you don't want to, but it does make for colorful conversation... and even though Big Stick has a knack for riling up the natives here, don't discount what he has to say without thorough examination... he lives for this stuff as anyone can easily see...

But, to keep in the spirit of this thread- if it were me I would think seriously about going with a big 7 - 7 RUM, 28 Nosler, 7 Rem Mag, or something similar in a platform with the fewest constraints for experimentation. Big bullets need big mag boxes and the proper freebore, and usually long barrels. That would be my starting point...

That being said,I'd not wish to swipe your DREAMS,because that would be mean. Hint.

ONLY Clueless Fhuqks start a Thread such as this and ONLY to garner "approval" that their STUPIDITY is "embraced". They do NOT want anything other than a Group Hug and Facts matter less than none. Droolers clamor for "endorsement" and it's a Fhuqking Retard Roundup,as the gals can attest to,if only obliviously. Hint.

NONE of these Stupid Fhuqks "shoot" anything other than their mouths and Imaginations and beating that drum in unison,soothes 'em. I'm rather at ease in musing what do what and more importantly why,if only because not all reading same are Professional "Victims". The astute will garner same,act in accordance and simply connect dots by literal default. Why?!? It can go NO other way. Hint.(grin)

The OP is coming to terms with her CLUELESSNESS and at least that's a step forward. If only again...Vudoo to the rescue,if only because I shoot it all and then some. Not that I don't enjoy CLUELESS Crying Karens poking their heads in the sand. Hint.

90% of hunters do 90% of their shooting under 300 yds, so all this BC claptrap is utter bovine excrement. Someone here clings to it like the holy grail of the universe and sprays his toxicity on all who approach (willfully or not) his infinite wisdom.

I agree that there needs to be adequate consideration of terminal performance as well as bc. The ideal bullet for 600 yards is not necessarily the ideal bullet for up to 300 yards, which is the longest distance the majority of hunters can and do shoot.

The bc is crap on those 22LR projectiles, they die after 80 yards.

That is probably true in your neck of the woods and others here also, but for those of us who hunt where these things matter, these discussions are pretty helpful. I would say that lately 50% of my opportunities have been beyond 300 yards, and some of them are far beyond that mark... knowing a little about BC, ballistics, and bullet performance in your chosen cartridge is never a bad thing IMO... but you do you and whatever makes you happy...

Sweetie,

Both have MULTIPLE variations and I can only attest,to them which I've shot through my rifles(multiple) and chronographs(multiple) and erectors(multiple). Hint.

[Linked Image from imagizer.imageshack.com]

Perhaps the 200's also now have a greater muzzle velocity,than the 155's? Hint. Fhuqking LAUGHING!

Pardon my simply shooting it all and then some. Hint.

Stick no matter how hurtful you are sometimes (that’s what she said) Us Alaskans will love you no matter what. We even forgive you living closer to Seattle than you do to Anchorage..

I do have a question on the chart you provided the velocity says 3500 fps. Is that your velocity or Bryan Litz velocity? If you are getting 3500 fps out if a 308 please share that data. I will go buy a box of 155 today and have my daughter shoot that at the next 1000yd match. Come up at 1000 5.7 mils, 5 mph wind drift correction 0.9 [bleep] sign me up.

I simply shoot it all and enjoy Drooling CLUELESS Fhuqktards,"correcting" schit they've never even fhuqking "seen" or shot. Very fhuqking FEW could begin to fhuqking fathom the magnitude and I'm happy,that more cain't. Hint.(grin)

While I disdain .30's,I reckon I've "only" shot 10,000 155 Skinners and all begrudgingly. Why? Physics matter and the .284's boast them attributes. I've only (1) SA 700 receiver that's shot out (7) barrels and it's never not been a 7-08. Hint.

Thanks for "correcting" me. Hint.
