The AR-10A4(standard grade @ $1200 NIB) has a rep for outshooting the M1A NM right out of the box. It will come with two (2) ten round mags and a ton of fun.

Yeah, I do own a few 10s, myself.

Don't know what you can and cannot own in CA, but I have always wanted a scoped FAL...Hubby might be interested in it.

FAL

It would be either a springfield M1A or the FAL... both in 308 and both suited for hunting or as a defensive rifle.

Get an HK 91 with a bunch of 20-round mags. A registered sear and full-auto trigger pack would be a good add-on as well when hunting wild boars.

1. FAL
2. Browning
3. Remington

The Remington and Browning offer a large variety of calibers but the FAL is a 308 and that will do everything you need it to in North America and most other continents. However, the Browning and Remington are both more PC looking than the FAL and can go places the FAL can't.

M1As are cool.
Why does he want a semi for hunting?

My wife also wants another hunting rifle. And she wants a semi-auto. AND she wants one that looks like a hunting rifle, not an "army gun" ;Q

A nice bolt action would be better suited for hunting due to it's accuracy. Why does he want a semi to hunt?

I guess you never know when it's time to switch from hunting creatures to two legged vermin.... for that the M1A and FAL are also well suited.

gemplemums:

Remember that I live in the Occupied Territories of Southern Kalifornia...which means that nearly all centerfire, magazine-fed rifles are verboten for me.

Hubby is currently looking at Springfield M1As...which, unfortunately, are on "allocation", which means Springfield keeps a tight control over how many are shipped out.

Since the M1A is currently one of the few legal mag-fed rifles LEFT that you can buy in Kalifornia (excepting those that are older, such as SKS), there is naturally a high demand for them here...and a correspondingly high price tag. While the MSRP is roughly $1400, I imagine they probably book for $1600 or so in Kali. I hate this state. ;t

I don't believe the FN FAL is legal in Kalifornia any more.

Compare total price.

.308 almost a dollar a boom
7.62x39 a few cents a boom.

Go out with a SAR-1, $300, slap a scope on it, grab a 40 round clip, and go hunt some deer!!!

There were many hunting rifles that came and went with this deer hunter, the last being a REM 7400 in .270 which I used for a trade to take some of the sting out of the price of my Springfield MIA. I am totally happy with .308

Also, why is a bolt action always so inherently more accurate then a semi? If they have the same rifling and the same length barrel, wouldnt that be really all that mattered? Or does the energy spent ejecting the round and recycling the action hurt accuracy and velocity?

I don't know, I might very well be.

http://natchezss.com/ammo/rifle/ra308win.html

Over here they have it from 15-22 for a pack of 20.. so my limited math ability looks like this $20/20rds=1 per round. As an average. I did see 15 dollar boxes, so once again the nut math $15/20rds=.75 per 1 round.

Am i looking at the wrong place or wrong caliber?

Just checked out Springfield's site...

...and looked at the White Feather.

OH MY LORD!!!

;G

Figures that any rifle endorsed by Carlos Hathcock would be over FOUR THOUSAND FREAKIN' DOLLARS!

And I thought Steyrs were expensive. ;P

GlockM23:

It looks like the the rounds that are in the upper fifteen to twenty range are either match-grade or specialty rounds, i.e., "X rounds" or "Nosler Ballistic" rounds.

I guess this is more expensive because of more gunpowder, larger bullet...dunno, I know JACK about rifles except Mausers and SKS and even those I'm not too good about the ammo. I just point at the box and they give it to me. ;f
