    No one.

    you are going to spend quite a bit, then even more to feed it.

    Semiauto .308's are expensive. I prefer the Armalite AR-10. The DPMS LR-308 is also popular. Either one is going to cost you.

      Blackdog is right; they are expensive. And there will be no "best." There may be, however, a rifle that has exactly the features you need.

      Armalite is a great brand IMO because they do not just pump out the same old junk as everyone else with their brand stamped on it. Armalite is always tweaking the platform to see where improvements can be made.

      This is the cheapest AR-10 that Armalite sells and it runs at ~$1500

      A bit cheaper and possibly the most common that I've seen is DPMS. They do have a lot of different configurations. This bare-bones 16" sporting model lacks an ejection port cover/forward assist/shell deflector but it is available for ~$1000:

      And it seems to be a little less popular than the other 2 mentioned but Rock River Arms also has .308 AR's, they call them their LAR-8 line. Price is just under ~$1200

      But make sure you don't forget the true cost: ammo. If you want to shoot new factory ammo it will cost you anywhere from ~$1.00-$2.50 per round. If you get a deal on some surplus ammo you can get it for just over $0.50 per round.

          If money has a limit then DPMS is the only answer.

          Of course the Knight's Armament is the best when not considering cost.

            If money was not a consideration I would have a Noveske Leonidas.

                Just kidding. I'd go for a DPMS myself. No, they don't make JWise's hallowed "good AR-15" list in 5.56, but I've heard nothing but good about them. Of course, I don't qualify for the holy Ar-15 group, so I don't know what the **** I'm talking about....

                  Agreed.

                  The DPMS has been having quite a few issues. We just sent a brand new .308 SASS back as a matter of fact.

                    I think you are a victim of hype...

                    And What Do You Think Will Happen With A More Powerful Round? Hahahahahahahhaahhahahahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaa!
                    1st a more powerful round doesn't necessarily equate to higher chamber pressures, 2nd you could always reduce the size of the gas port...

                      I agree with the Noveske. Never had any issues with the one I played with in Afghanistan.

                        Armalite IMO

                          The best .308 AR is a DS Arms FAL.


                          I was trying to decide between a DPMS .308 or a FAL. I am intimitely familiar with AR's, so I went DSA FAL to have something different. Plus it looks "sexier".

                            Those are outstanding.

                            The SA58TAC Tactical Carbine has a 16.25" barrel, and is listed by DSARMS at $1650. The SA58ELITE is listed at $1910. The SA58SPR runs close to $5000.

                              Always a good idea to broaden your horizons. I always like knowing another type of firearm just in case when the SHTF that is the only one available. It would suck to be in a life-or-death situation, pick up a gun off the ground, and not know how to use it!

                              I gotta say, though, for $5000 you would think they would advertise with a little more detail than "Premium Barrel" on those FALs. Is it Stainless? Chrome moly? Chrome-lined? Unobtainium?
