It also depends on what you want the gun to do for you. If you want to take down big game or be a multi-purpose gun with both sustained fire capibility and accurate single shot capibility.

Def multipurpose. Long range target shooting mainly, semi auto wouldnt hurt.

Well if you want a bolt gun, I'd go ahead and get a 30-06 because of its many different handloads available. Of course, you could always get a BAR rifle in 30-06 as well for the semi-auto action if that is more your style like myself.
If you're willing to put out a couple hundred more you could go with a pretty decent 308 AR-10 from DPMS and you can get often handload to get 1 MOA or less out of a good AR-10 like theirs from what I hear.

A CA-legal AR-10 is not cheap. Like "my wife will kill me" not cheap. AR-10 is really what I want (or a R-25 in 308), but thats about 500 more than I want to spend. I can get an FAL for $900.

Well an FAL is much more reliable than a Saiga 308 pre or post converted. A Saiga may get 1.5 MOA at 100 yards if you tune it right with factory ammo. I've seen it tighten up some with handloads and a few upgrades. But the plus side is that a saiga wont break the bank, as far as I know, not sure if they're legal in California though.

Knowing how much are you willing to spend would be a good way for us to narrow things down.

My problem with the saiga is the crap trigger. I know they make an adjustable one but still hear they can be difficult.

I do like the chrome lined barrel though.

Up here I have been to places where the only store in 30 miles might if your lucky have a box or two of 30-06, 30-30, 12 Gage shotgun shells and maybe 22lr on the shelf and possibly if the store owner is a real gun nut a box of 270. I don't know about other places but that's here.
I have both but I hunt with the 30-06. The 308 is for paper punching.

The 06 and .308 are very close in respects to the amount of reloading that can be done with them. The advantage in 06 is it is just a tad bit faster, and can be tweeked a bit more then the 308, sense it's case has a little more powder capasity.

In some areas of the U.S. you may run into a lack of 308 ammo as apposed to .06 off the shelves. So if you want to hunt med. to large north American game you might want the .06 sense you will have more ammo in the stores to choose from.

Also don't forget the Cetme/G-3/HK-91 there good semi-autos with a good reliability and the accuricy for it's intended use is good. The Cetme is going for arouns $500-$600 U.S.

I can't find a Cemte/G-3 that is CA legal, only the FAL.
