Suggestions for a .308

Have my eyes out for a pig/deer/home defense/zombie AR-10 style 308. Thoughts and suggestions would be appreciated.

Probably never shoot supressed, though I'm not 100% sure. I've eyed LMT, LWRC, DPMS, POF....

the LWRC REPR is around $3500-$4000.... If you're thinking of spending around $3000, just buy a Larue and be done with it.

I had all the 308's at our range about a month ago.

I would suggest the LMT/SCAR based on price point and reliability.

The OBR was cool , but was balking at lighter weight surplus ammo , and if you want to feed your 308 cheap the Larue will not be as reliable with lighter surplus ammo.

If you want to feed it match ammo all the time buy the OBR, one of our snipers was so impressed he traded his REPR for the one we we were shooting.

The SCAR impressed the hell out of me lightweight and very accurate with good ammo.

Bushmaster has their entry-level for about $1100.00, otherwise the price just goes higher for better quality. I'm not a DPMS fan.

ptr-91....

done... it can shoot about 3 MOA and it can eat everything.

delayed roller blowback, magazines for $7 each, all kinds of fun can be had.....

They should be about $1500 or so.

I know right bushmaster actually sold the rights of their 308 and design to RRA.

The remington 308 is actually a DPMS with a Remington made Barrel I think this week

i was looking into this but have spent alot of time researching a FAL and now im debating which battle rifle i really want. and from my screen name, you can see its a 3 way decision.

Had an FAL and a H&K 91 and a Gallil liked them, but the AR style is so much more user friendly from an ergonomics standpoint they are a much slicker system.

Neither will have a trigger as nice as a good AR trigger, and I had Williams trigger jobs in both...

This, and this.

Also, I'd say .308 is probably not an ideal caliber for HD use unless you live on a significant amount of land, and are more worried about threats outdoors.

.308 inside a home.....

What do people think of the Kel-Tec RFB? I know it's not an AR platform, but I have an irrational love for Bullpups.
