Savage 99 is a nice rifle. I inherited a featherweight in .308 last year.
my first choice would be one of my 5.56mm carbines. Probably the suppressed SBR I use at work.
While I enjoy 308, a 5.56 semi auto is more than adequate for anything within likely defensive range, including a suburban driveway, cul-de-sac or neighborhood street.
Here’s an interesting twist on the AR-15 that will provide more stopping power, the .458 Socom. You can buy a separate upper that will just drop onto your AR-15 lower. Uses the same AR15 mags that you own. Ammo is pricey but if it’s for home defense, just keep a few mags ready to go with some premium offerings from Underwood. It is a fairly short range weapon, a 100 yard gun. And man, is it ever going to deliver some stopping power. I am considering buying a .458 Socom upper myself.

NO for using an AR10 in the suburbs. I live in the sticks and still wouldn't use it in the house. I'm comfortable with a Springfield Armory XDM in 45 ACP, attached Streamlight and 14 round magazine.
Depend what kind of self defense
O.K., I submit!
No AR-10 for home defense even though I love the thought of a 600 yard AR weapon.
This brings me to my next question: If I were to purchase an AR-15 to which I would have to make minimum modifications, which brand should I be looking at?
Quality of build and durability is of greater concern than price.
........ Never mind
LWRC piston AR15. No need to modify anything.
Pistol caliber carbines make fantastic HD weapons.
True rifles, ESPECIALLY in 7.62 are a sub-optimal choice.
But you’ve got the “Rifle-hammer” crowd that view every problem as a nail.
Use the right tool for the right job.
The car could be made for a suppressed .300 BLK rifle... but otherwise, just use a PCC.
Accurate hits on target as fast as you can pull the trigger in the pistol caliber of your choice will be plenty effective in defending yourself.
20ga Shockwave and a G21 are my nightstand guns.
Aero Precision M4E1
M&P 15 Sport 2
upper end is KAC, LMT and LWRC if you want a $2k plus rifle
Any Colt. BMC, Danial Defense. I have a preban Colt AR15 Sporter II with a 20" barrel. I like it a lot.
Old School home defense ... back then it was a 'family' thing.
Not to bend the topic, but Garand was an outstanding marksman. All he’d have to worry about was the round passing completely through the perp.
300 BLK with a can.
Agtman, those pics make me proud to be an American. That is all. Thank you.
The norm, M&P 45. HST 230gr+P
PCC or shotgun for in-home defense.
