I have heard here and there the idea that this rifle is a home-defense alternative to an AR-10, M1, or M1A. Mainly because it is box-fed. Occasionally people (probably not any of us here on this thread, of course) forget that it is really only intended to be fired about as rarely as bolt-actions. I don't think they were designed to be high-volume shooters.
