Im looking to get a long range (600-800) yards semi auto 308. So far ive looked at the dpms lr308, the m1a socom and the fnl. I like the looks of the dpms. It's obviously gonna have a huge optic since I can't see. I'm looking to stay under $2000.00 for just the rifle. I want a long range rifle for an eow scenario not just paper punching or hunting. What is everybody's favorites? What are some pros and cons?

kdub, that's stretching a long ways for most semi-auto rifles, even with a good scope. the main one in 308 that really seems able to fit your needs is the Springfield Armory M1A in 308. these things are built solid and reliable and are pretty dang accurate. you could still get one in your price range. standard model is about $1300-1450 and they make a match grade and national match grade. these are a little higher than the standard model.
IME, any AR type 308 beats out the old M1A hands down.
And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
