If someone asked for your chose of a AR in .308, what would it be ?
sr25 or armalite's ar10
Have u looked at the SCAR?
if i was going to get one it would be the RRA. they use fal mags both inch and metric.
I was kind of thinking along the lines as to one of these.
+1 on the RRA option. Although to be fair I have never shot their .308. I like their AR-15, they offer quality for a good price. They have a very good set of options to choose from as well for the 308.
M14 original with the selective fire mode, full auto or semi. Full auto is uncontrollable throw a bipod and a red dot and your good.
What do you all think of the FNAR`s ?
check out the Bushmaster rifles. they carry a couple of 308s in the ar type rifles. not cheap, but well made rifles. have not shot or owned one in 308, but have a m4a2 in 5.56, sweet shooting rifle, very well made. i have been very pleased with it's performance so far.
Since Eugene originally designed the AR10 for 7.62/308 when he was at Armalite, that seems a reasonable choice. Sure it isn't the same company as it was back in the late 50's but what company is. I have one of their AR10's and it is stupid accurate for a 16" barrel .308. Never had a single problem with their 20 round mags and this rifle loves 110gr Hornady TAP ammo. And that is a great round for anti-personel use or just general all round shooting. I use heavier stuff for hogs but pretty much any round out of an AR10 will drop a hog.
FWIW, I love RRA and LMT rifles also and wouldn't turn down an LMT if I needed another AR10 and money wasn't an issue. I have a 5.56 LMT and it is a fantastic AR. I want my AR's to be fully functional after being dropped in the mud, picked up, and put into the fight. I trust Armalite, LMT and RRA for that. Not so with some of the matchgrade AR's.
Offhand, I'd have to agree with the AR-10...
AR-10 / SASS / SR-25 style rifle.
I'm looking at a POF P-308 right now.
But, getting on the 18 week waiting list is a serious commitment.
If I could, I would buy the SCAR-17 right now.
The problem is, it's not available in CA.
(have to fix the stock and add the bullet button).
FN won't do this. (I don't blame them)
POF for the win.
