I would first ask what's the intended use. (You said long distance precision.) To what ranges are "long" for you? Do you plan on using it inside of 100 yards? Ie: clearing rooms or buildings.

If only shooting long distance then you have two choices. Semi auto or bolt guns?
You have selected a semi auto from the choices listed above. But do you know the advantages and disadvantages of both types of rifles?

Bolt guns are generally much more accurate. They can be made to meet 1/4 to 1/2 moa. Bolts have a slower rate of fire and have limited ammo capacity.

Semi autos are less accurate. Not by a lot, but it's enough. Especially at longer distance. The upside is they can be used up close as a support weapon, also as a patrol gun. The ammo capacity is 20 round mags and can be carried on a vest.

There's been times I've been known to bring both bolt and semi autos on ops. But I always favored the m40 bolt gun. It provided the extra distance and accuracy I needed/wanted when providing over watch.

So which gun do you think fits your need better?

308 isnt really a 1000yd cartridge. it starts struggling once it hits 800.

i went through a similar decision and having done some 1000 yd shooting with 308 its just too wonky a caliber at that range to be reliable for real accuracy. i went scar17 more for its decent accuracy but more realistic use as battle rifle rifle that is capable of filling a DMR role.

if you really want 800+ you need to look at 300mag or bigger and that is the territory of good bolt guns.

Well here's the part that stinks. If you want 1000 yard shots, the sass is going to be tough to achieve an accurate shot. While the .308 can make 1000 yard shots, the 300 win mag is much better.

I would honestly say go with the sass. It's a go to war type gun that can be carried full time.
Get a nice heavy match grade barrel, a great bcg, nice trigger and go hit the range and build up the skill needed to operate a weapon like that.

Just my .02. Most of my engagements were within 700m and a sass was a better choice for that role.

The barrel needs to be a heavy match grade. Most of the rifles are not match grade. They are chf and chrome lined. If your selected rifle comes with match grade (pof, larue, some lwrc) you will definitely know. Hence the reason on the higher price tags.

What are your thoughts on the gap10? It's a little more but everything seems to be match grade

I hear there are "Heavy Barrel" 300 win Mag, and 338 Lapuas in Semi-Auto coming out. Still, you want a 20" or longer if your trying to push a 7.62 to 800 Yds. and be at least on paper if not in the center black. My M1's are 20 " & 24", and I wouldn't even try 800 with the 20", but I'm not a full time SDM,..just Shooting for my own enjoyment..

The gap 10 would be a good choice. The have thicker/stronger upper receivers, a great 5th barrel and great customer service.
I would get either the 18" or 20" barrels. The statement made above isn't entirely true. The .308 is capable of great precision out of a 18" @ 900m.
