Lately I've been taking an interest in .308 rifles for long range use. There is a Mossberg 100 ATR package deal at Big R for under $800 that includes a huge scope, bipod, cammo stock, adjustable trigger, and a huge muzzle brake. Or I could go semi-auto and build my own out of a Saiga .308. I have a Saiga 12 and I love it (with the exception of the stupid import stocks and fire control assemblies). Wondering if the barrel is "heavy" enough for long range scope work or if it's more of a battle rifle.
