I've always been intrigued with this round. I've shot a rifle in .308, but it was long ago and it was a single shot (Remington, I think). I've been looking around at some rifles, but there are lots of options out there. Whatever I get, I'd like to have it set up for mid-long range. Semi-auto is great, but I'm afraid it's out of the price consideration. I'm looking at the $500-$700 range. Ideas?
