  1. For either an AK in .308 or in 7.62x39. Here is the terrain: A previously thinned timber area, now heavy woodland, with 15 years worth of small diameter tree and brush undergrowth; hog and deer heaven now. Long and narrow logging roads wind their way in a labyrinth through the 100's of acres of slow rolling terrain. After some distance, these roads lead to random wide clearings of pasture, most under 20 acres, but irregularly arranged and shaped. There are 2 separate clearings for 2 pipelines that run through the area, and the views here can be in the 1000's of yards. -Practical applications and considerations- 1) Self defense on the roads, in the timber and over the clearings. 2) Hunting in these areas, whether it be deer at an unknown range or hogs. So, what I am wanting to know, since I have been unable to find satisfactory answers, and the terra firma is of some complexity, is which of these calibers would you chose for the above conditions taking into consideration each platforms: -barrier penetration (brush, trees, unknown barriers) (it's understood .308 has the advantage) -ability for follow up shots (?) -platform weight (aren't they close with 308 being the heavier) -platform cost (x39 cheaper, significantly with mags and ammo) -maximum effectiveness in the above environment (?) Your opinions and if you would, reasons why, in case I have missed something. A brain is a good thing to pick... just not through the nose. -Thanks
