Help deciding on a new semi auto .308
 
I'm looking for a an accurate .308 semi auto rifle with the ability to mount a scope. I would like something that can shoot very precise at longer distances and that is obviously also reliable. My budget is preferably under $1300. I will mostly use it for hunting hogs and other large non-game animals (exotic deer, coyotes, etc.) any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

the standard a4 is very accurate can likely be had for cheaper. takes common l1a inch or metric mags.

The DPMS LR308-AP4 is short, light weight, utterly reliable and quite accurate, and feels like an AR-15. It's only 3/4 lb heavier than the 5.56 M-4 version.

A near perfect brush and mountain gun for game up to elk size.

About $1100 MSRP

Ditto jon and locutus - for your price range both RRA and DPMS make a good AR10
