I couldn't vote! Danged chads gettin' in the way. LOL I got a message saying my session had some kinda problem. Oh well.
My favorite .308 is my Spanish FR8. Dead-on accurate at 50 and 100 yards with the Cetme-style sights. It's my most accurate milsurp.
H&K-91. Good sights, accurate, well made, reliable, tough, availability of parts, straight insertion of mags (no "rocking" them in) low recoil for faster follow-up shots if necessary. And it's really cool when you "slap" the bolt handle to charge the weapon!
Should have said semi-auto, thought it was assumed.
But if you'd rather have a bolt, even with all the advantages of semi, guess that's worth saying.
About the HK-91... It's also one of the simplest guns I've stripped. More so than AK or AR-180. And it'll take plenty of crud before it jams.
Out of the choices listed, I voted for the M14 because it is reliable and there are a large number of parts available to accurize it. However, I'm actually a big fan of bolt actions and if I could have just one rifle chambered in 308, it would be my Savage 10FP. Heck, if I could have just one rifle of any make, model, and caliber to use for the rest of my life, it would be my Savage 10FP in 308; well, out of factory rifles anyhow, customs are another story.
i've got a L1A1 & a Savage 11flc (bolt action .308, barrel cut down to 20") but i like my HK91 best of all for all the reasons already mentioned plus it's balanaced well & the rifle & the mags are sturdy.
I voted for the FN-FAL. I love the feel, looks and accuracy of FAL's. From my experience, they are pretty dependable rifles. The recoil isn't too bad either. Once I get my STG-58 working right, that will be my favorite .308. If bolt guns where included, my Savage 110FP Tactical. I voted for guns that I own, because I really do not have much else expirence with the others, except the M-14.
M1 Garand???I could be wrong, but I thought those where .30-06, unless you are talking about a tanker? Also, isn't the BAR .30-06 too?? I am not sure about those, just thought I would ask.
That's a loaded question for me G3, out of the list choices I as always have to lean toward the FAL but for the bottom line I would have to say a Remington 700 short action in a Accuracy Internation AICS chassis. For those "out yonder" shots the AICS system is as good as it gets. Of course working off a Rem 700 action the caliber choices will make you crazy.
