Here's what I'm looking for:
- A semi-auto rifle, chambered for 7.62 NATO, that won't choke on .308 Winchester ammo
- Needs to accept 20 round magazines, & have 5 round magazines available
- I want to be able to have excellent accuracy out to at least 600 meters
- It has to be able to take down deer-sized animals at that same distance (assuming I am good enough to hit them, of course )
- I need to be able to mount a scope that will allow me to be precise out to at least 600 meters
- Ideally, it will accept a suppressor
- It can't cost an arm and a leg...
I'm fairly new to the ins and outs of 7.62 / .308 rifles, so don't assume I know anything about anything. Having said that, I grew up hunting with my Dad, some of which was deer hunting. I used a semi-auto 308 Winchester for the few years that I hunted deer, so while I'm not a complete noob, please feel free to pretend I am...
Any and all suggestions will be much appreciated!
