The requirments are
1. Not TOO exspensive 600$ or so
2. Semi auto
3. Detachable magazine
4. Available in 308.

Got any suggestions?

Save some more money then come back and ask again. You'll get a bottom shelf bolt gun with that much dough.

Savage or howa.I have both and they were worth the money.

What are you planning on doing with this gun? Hunting, Targets for fun, top notch accuracy, ect.

For good semi auto new its going to be over $1000 used might get lucky theres the m1a of course there are garand chambered in .308 the FAL The sagia is about your best bet for good cheap semi .308

i have a springfeild armory socom 2 chambered in 308 (i may be wrong but i belive it only comes in 308) i bought it used on gun broker for 780$ it has been a great gun it has never jammed(save for faulty cheap bulk ammo) and is an absolute tack driver out to 400yards get a little wild after that depending on ammo brand/quality but still puts all rounds on paper
on a personal note there are probly cheaper guns just as good. this one is the only 308 i have ever owned but like it very much
as others have said you go very cheap and what you get is cheap i looked for months before coming across this one at that price.

Saiga 308 not the most reliable or accurate, but it will fire, even with the cheap stuff.

I haven't shot a Saiga yet, but I know the AK action, and they are rusky built to boot. Just knowing that I bet you could beat the hell out of that rifle.

I agree with MRAWESOME. Just a few more bucks and you will find some real nice ones that your looking for. If your like me, I like getting what I want the first time, and not wishing I done something else, and redoing it. Good Luck!

Saiga is all your gonna get for that price and i personally would not own one.. So i say save up

You can probably get a CETME for that price.

Both are bolt action.the savage is one of the no.11 models and the howa is the 1500 type.

The Springfield m1a rifles are about your best bet fir a cheep price range.
