Your choice: .223 or .308?

If money is not an issue which autoloading rifle would you choose? Are there makes/models you definitely would buy, and others you would avoid?

Potgut, IMO you first have to define what you plan to do with the autoloader? CQB, varmint shooting/hunting, paperpuncher, LR/sniping etc.

With that said, both are outstanding choices; what you want to do with the rifle will more or less dictate your selection.

Good Luck!

Gotta roll with DEA on this one. Your purpose should define your choice. That being said, I favor the Springfield M1A in .308 and the Bushmaster Varminter in .223. I have a 16'' upper for CQB use on my Bushmaster lower, that'll swap out in a minute. I gravitate to these choices because i carried both an M14 and an M16 in the military
