I'm getting an AR. Don't know which one though. I am a born and bred, thru-and-thru .308 guy. Every bolt action, long range rifle I own is in .308 (one 260 rem on its way). My question is this: I plan on shooting this gun quite a bit. I know the .308 has longer range, more knockdown and so on and so on. But what about the price of rounds. Does that counter the advantages of the .308 enough to justify going with a .223? Plus, the gun is cheaper. I don't think I'd ever use it over 200 yards. Another key point...I reload but would like to buy a lot of cheap (good/fairly accurate) . What do you all think? Sorry if I'm beating a dead horse with this post.
