I say LaRue OBR 7.62. My best friend has an FNAR and it is far from a tack driver. It averages 1.5" groups at 100yds with GMM. The OBR is a reliable, sub MOA .308.

Edit: both wear Leupold 6.5-20 MK4s.

I can't speak on that particular M1 but I have the Super Match and it is really accurate and REALLY heavy.

Of the two......i'd pick neither, I'd get a SCAR 17 or an OBR and accept the price difference because they're accurate and they work.
SCAR 17S has my vote. Mine quickly became my favorite rifle. Light, accurate, reliable, and ergonomical - no other gun offers all of these in the same package. It is almost like having a 7.62 in a 5.56 form factor.

You guys are torturing me with your SCAR 17 talk. I originally wanted to purchase the SCAR, however, none of my local shops have them and the ones I've found online go for $3000+ delivered. Also from what my dealer told me the .308 SCAR magazines are harder to find than the Holy Grail. But you just cant argue with the SCAR's performance and style.

I'm tired or looking for a 17S so I am having a Christensen Arms 308 made for me, instead.

You can get the SCAR 17, or you can get something that isn't as good.

I have owned all of the common 7.62x51 battle rifles at one time or another. My SCAR 17s is the top of the food chain.

My 17S was 2734 total (for everything). I bought it 3 weeks ago. I since easily obtained 5 spare magazines, while they cost more than retail, I didn't pay an excessive amount for them. They are out there if you look hard enough.

Here is something that is totally off the board.

This is my 1993 KMC (now KAC) SR-25 Match/Mk11 Mod 0

General Firearms Forum

With the 24" Obermeyer barrel, this easily shoots .5MOA @100 yds. It is, by far, the most accurate rifle I have.

Between the FN and the M1A, I would highly urge you to get the full sized M1A. Classic lines. Easy take down, maintenance is a breeze, new military mags are commonly available for much cheaper than the FN.

Just like jrs93accord said, one helluva accurate rifle.
