Default 7.62x51

I've hunted most of my life, but never got into reloading. Thinking about it now. I do have a question though...

What is a good semi-automatic rifle chambered in 7.62x51 that doesn't look like an assault rifle? I like how the Ruger Mini-14 looks and would like something like that. Any thoughts?

If you like the mini 14, maybe you should look at a M14 or M1A. The M14 is where they got the "mini" from for the mini 14.

Browning BAR or the Remington M750. both of these are more hunting rifles than looking tactical.

both of those.

Also, the FNH FNAR. it is pretty much a BAR with a 20 round magazine.

The M1A looks every but as much an "assault" rifle as an AR-15.

Yeah, I think so too, but he specifically said he likes the styling of the mini 14....

Oh well. I'm going to look at that FNAR myself.

Out of production for some time, but still around- Winchester Model 100.

Toldja so! I really like the FNAR.

FNH has really hit a home run in combining a hunting rifle and a tactical rifle in one package.
