Default choosing long range .308

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.

M1A Loaded, the only way to go with a semi-auto.....

I'm somewhat in the same boat. I'm plaining on going with m1a as soon as my funds allow.

I have a DPMS LR308. I had an M1A.

IME, any AR type 308 beats out the old M1A hands down.
