Apologies for what may be an extremely redundant topic...
I am new to the experience. I have a S&W M&P22 that I enjoy (when I can find ammo)
I was interested in picking up something in a larger caliber, but frankly, the choices are too much to understand. 223/556, 30-06, something else?
I see a ton of options, styles, sizes, prices, and I'm lost.
I'm looking for something semi-auto that I can attach a nice Zeiss scope onto, but doesn't cost an arm and a leg. Maybe $1000 is the target price. Something for closer-in use, as I'm not looking to reach a mile in accuracy. Also, the ammo availability is one consideration.
If anyone has any links to what they like that I can look at, I'd appreciate the guidance.
