I just recently bought an AR 10 (more than $1K) but there were several AR10 for $1K but they are going FAST if you can find anyone with any in stock DPMS has a few .308's for $800 to $1K I believe Bushmaster had a model or 2 for about that, I copied a link below for a non AR .308 and for deer hunting you can't go wrong with this one.

I had one of those a few years ago.

I could not, in good conscience, recommend it to anyone.
I had nothing but grief from it.

If I ever bought a simi auto .308 it would have to be a PTR-91.
It is made from H&K's blueprints with their blessing, and it is made in the US.

The link you give is just a cheap version of this Benelli. I want the Benelli in 300 Win Mag, they advertise half the felt recoil and the rifle comes in at a nice weight to pack.

Well I was trying to keep the cost low so he could pick up a decent scope and keep the price at $1,000, I have the Benelli R1 in .300WM with a Millett Tactical Riflescope and it ran w/scope about $1,300, I highly recommended the R1 in another post I made a few weeks ago, so to the OP splurge and get the R1 here’s mine. I don't think it reduces the recoil in half but its very manageable for follow up shots.

FNH is the original maker of the FAL

I was referring to the DPMS recommendation.
