I was recently looking for something in .308. I originally looked at a couple AR-10 models... but the price and relative unreliability of them, compared to the AR-15 platform turned me away.

I was looking very closely at the FAL style rifles, the only downside again, was price - I didn't really want to get a CAI model.

I really like the M1A styles and it was a close runner up.

In the end, I ended up not going semi-auto, and went with a Remington 700 bolt action. The price was right, and my plans for 308 are for longer ranger precision shooting. Don't really need a semi auto for that. The FAL platform would be nice, but if I need something more powerful than the AR15, I can go with the AK in 7.62x39... not quite .308 power, I know... but more than enough for any kind of close work I would expect to encounter.

If your choices, I'd probably go with the M1A, or MAYBE the Rock River AR-10... but is there a reason you haven't included the FAL in your list?
