Presently I'm considering getting a .308 for hunting and want a semi-auto. I have experience with the BAR in 30.06 but to me it seems too heavy. I'm looking used or new, and want to stay away from the 'assault weapon' type since my state has a ban on those. So far I have looked at the Winchester Model 100 and the Remington 7400 (none in .308). I looked at the Brunelli, but the price is way too high for those. Other suggestions welcome.
