Which .308 battle rifle has the most bang for the buck
I've spent the last few months trying to figure out what .308 battle rifle would be the best buy to go along with my savage bolt action in .308. It seems like the low end would be CEMTE's, with some of the FAL reproductions being a bit more. Then at about 1000-1200 bucks basic AR-10s and the standard M1A. I realize the sky is about the limit on how much I could spend on a .308 battle rifle, but I'm trying to stay under 1500.
One thing about the AR-10 and M1A, is I'd most likely want to go for higher end models, and then be needing to put optics on them, meaning more money. But if anyone has any input on their favorite .308 battle rifle and is willing to share I'd appreciate it.
