The m4 and the ar15 are pretty similar, as far as the chamber caliber you can get an ar upper chambered for anything from .22lr to .308 win to .50 Beowulf so 7.62 isn't a problem.. The type of ammo you run has a lot to do with with how dirty and how fast but a quality ar15 should still function even dirty

SemiAuto Rifle: AR15 is the way to go, and quite accurate for a few hundred yards. But an AR10 (308) has the potential to check two spots off your list, being very capable of "reaching out". Same with a Springfield M1A.

Bolt long-range: On a budget, Weatherby Vanguard is really tough to beat. And if you want to spend a bit more I sure like CZ and Browning bolt guns. 308 is a good way to go on a modest budget.

Pistol: Your mentioned choices are all good ones. I'd take the XDm over the CZ when it comes to polymer, but I love the steel-framed CZ 75b. Also hard to go wrong with a 1911, BHP, any alloy Sig, or a good 357mag revolver. These are all good launching points in my opinion, as are various polymer guns from Glock, S&W, FN, Ruger, etc.
