    The best hat, in any caliber, is one that fits your head. Please don't wear it cocked off to one side, looks silly to us old codgers. Lol

    (Serious answer, for me was a DPMS in 308. Box stores have them for a little over a grand. I love mine. )

    I got mine, including high power scope, in a trade for a Winchester. I have many Winchesters, so I picked one out I did not think I would miss too bad, and traded my rifle, for his DPMS and a thousands rounds of ammo.

    I had $200 in the Winchester. I came out ok. The scope I got was worth more than the $200 I have in the deal. I added a collapsible stock, and got that money back and then some, by selling the stock stock, on eBay. My investment is now about $180.

    Largest gun in my collection, is pictured with my smallest gun.

    Garands are 30-06. M-1a's are good to go though :)

    Good trade there AR10...I've had a DPMS LR308 AP4 Carbine for nearly 10 years now,it hasn't given me a bit of a problem and is a very accurate rifle.

    My question,what type of gun is next to your 308?

    There were some Garands that the Navy had rebarreled for 7.62x51 NATO. Not as common as the '06 versions, but they are out there.

    The best .308 is the one that fits your body and needs.

    Not the one that people on internet forums tell you is best. And not the one that looks the most tacticool.

    I would say m1 garand in 30-06.

    But I went scar17 so I could use optics easy

    For hunting I would say a Browning BAR or if you want something in a black rifle the FN-AR (google is your friend for pics). Both are based off of the BAR action. I have had a couple BARs and cant say enough good things about them and have heard the same about the FN-AR.

    what's your use for this? Looks, accuracy, hunting and/or SHTF?

    If you want something to look bad-ass.....get an airsoft rifle and save your $$

    If you want a tack driver, get an AR10 bench build with a long heavy barrel and lug that around between ranges.

    For hunting, you need lightweight and accurate I'd go +1 on the BAR

    For SHTF - I recommend a towel followed by antiseptic bath

    My favorite 556 rifle is the Noveske N4 Afghan with ss barrel and monolithic receiver.
    My favorite 308 is the H&K MR 762. Followed closely by the SIG 716

    LWRC REPR 20". Not cheap but a nail driver. And that is coming from an M1A fan.

    Depends. For sports or as a classic, the M1. For walking in the woods or HD, the probably the FNAR, or the Vepr (a little heavier)

    It's very hard to beat the BAR for hunting.
