Buying my first hunting rifle, mainly for deer.
My brain tells me I should but a Tikka T3 stainless, .308, some zeiss 3-9x50 glass, and a bipod.
But my gut tells me to buy pic related. AZ 30-06.
Seller tells me he's having a "hard time" finding out how old it is, but it's supposedly in great shape, and shoots accordingly.
I think it's an AZ Stutzen, as it has free floating barrel and full stock.
I only have experience from shooting with ARs.
Should I? It's so beautiful..

So /k/, what's better, a single GPMG firing full powered rifle cartridges in an infantry squad, or a pair of LMGs (one per fireteam) firing intermediate cartridges?
I ask, since many militaries have used the latter arrangement, even in the face of the problem of the marksmanship gap, which has necessitated that DMRs and battle rifles be reintroduced as common weapons. Yes, I know that, typically speaking, squads can call upon supporting arms like weapons squads, and also may have access to GPMGs or heavy weapons on their vehicles, but I'm talking about purely organic firepower here.
Sure, you save some weight and are able to share ammunition between your assault rifles and the LMGs, but does this outweigh the benefits of having the increased power and range of a GPMG?
