I would say m1 garand in 30-06.

But I went scar17 so I could use optics easy

For hunting I would say a Browning BAR or if you want something in a black rifle the FN-AR (google is your friend for pics). Both are based off of the BAR action. I have had a couple BARs and cant say enough good things about them and have heard the same about the FN-AR.

what's your use for this? Looks, accuracy, hunting and/or SHTF?

If you want something to look bad-ass.....get an airsoft rifle and save your $$

If you want a tack driver, get an AR10 bench build with a long heavy barrel and lug that around between ranges.

For hunting, you need lightweight and accurate I'd go +1 on the BAR

For SHTF - I recommend a towel followed by antiseptic bath

My Saiga 308 was pretty cheap.

My favorite 556 rifle is the Noveske N4 Afghan with ss barrel and monolithic receiver.
My favorite 308 is the H&K MR 762. Followed closely by the SIG 716

LWRC REPR 20". Not cheap but a nail driver. And that is coming from an M1A fan.

Depends. For sports or as a classic, the M1. For walking in the woods or HD, the probably the FNAR, or the Vepr (a little heavier)

It's very hard to beat the BAR for hunting.
