Glad I found this article; I too am looking into a semi-auto rifle and am not real sure where to begin. I love shooting my .45 taurus 24/7 but Im ready to move to something more interesting. I do have one (possibly really dumb to most of you) question. Im seeing similar rifles and interchanging definitions in magazines and it concerns this: What, if any, is the difference between a rifle shooting .223 or 5.56mm ammo? Is one interchangeable with the other? Are they actually the same (a-la- english vs. metric type thing), or are they completely different (and is one signifigantly cheaper to shoot than the other?) Thanks. (and I drool daily over the new sig 556)

I have shot SKS rifles for a while now, and I enjoy them. They're inexpensive (depending on which version you get), well made, and the ammo is inexpensive also. They shoot the 7.62x39 round....a nice medium size. As a first semi-auto, they're a blast. Some of them have collectible value, too.

As you can see there are lots of options. I have had excellent results with DPMS. Price is right for entry level also. I love my Colt but they are overpriced IMO.
