There’s never been a better time to be a Henry fan and a hunter. Over the past two decades, Henry's offerings have swelled to over 150 different models including shotguns and high-power rifle calibers. Whether it’s quail, squirrel, or elk Henry now has a firearm that will take on just about any season you choose. Versatility is a huge aspect to consider when purchasing a new firearm for hunting, and the Henry Long Ranger in .308 is about as versatile as it gets.
Why .308 Winchester?
The .308 Winchester cartridge may not have the lengthy pedigree of something like .30-30, but its rather meteoric rise to widespread success since its introduction in 1952 certainly wasn't a mistake or a fluke. It's probably the most popular hunting cartridge in America right now, and that's likely due to its sheer versatility. From wild hogs to whitetail deer and everything in between you could do much worse than .308. For beginners that don't want to purchase specialized firearms for every different season, or for seasoned deer camp veterans, this fine cartridge fits the bill and then some.
