Isn't Bushmaster now owned by Cerberus ... same people that own DPMS and Remington?

They (Cerberus) is also known now days as the Freedom Group. And many of it's corporate directors are gun people! Thank God! I think they just bought Barnes Ammunition Company also recently.
I know that ATK who also owns Federal and a few other companies just bought Blackhawk and I understand Eagle same products as Blackhawk. L-3 EOTech bought Litton makers of NV and Thermal optics and other produces as well as Insight Technology recently. A lot of buying going on today in the industry. Doesn't mean it is bad! It's just what is happening around the industry.

30-06 would be a bit long for the AR platform for chambering. I used to have an AK-47 in .308 winchester, and at times wisht I hadn't sold it. It was solid, shot great groups, easy to hand load for, held 25 rounds in the magazine, and if needed, it would make cover disappear.
Truthfully, for the cash money, I'd rather invest back into the Saiga .308 in the 16" barrel and do the conversion all over again to get it to the status it "should" have been. It has a very strong and reliable piston sysem with a 3 lug bolt, which I don't think the gas DI system of the 30-06 would be as reliable in that flavor.
