I have had numerous 308 AR's and deffinatley the POF recon is among the best for accuracy and reliability. Right now I think there are 3 good
platforms - the R25 remmington which is an excellent hunting style ar with camo to make it look a little less threatening and its very light - the
bushmaster moe in 308 and the adcor defense 308 both more tactical style rifles. Obviuosly the LMT and LWRC are also good rifles but too expensive to
be more than show pieces for most people.
I would stick with these over the repr to allow yourself a comfortable buget for an aimpoint, plenty of ammo and training plus range days.
I would also add the pof or similar roller cam pin to prevent bolt lockup, and incresed power extractor and hammer spring by BCM and Wulf to ensure
reliable extraction and ignition even with hard primer bulk mil ammo.
Also a locking stock like the CTR and single point magpul sling mount and ms2 or ms3 sling. Also a good brake I prefer PWS
If you don't mind a slight delay wolf is bringing cheap steel case 6.5 grendel to market now and that makes a supperior mixed use round imo
The m14 is an old heavy antiquated design - if you really like nostalgia get a vintage coke sign for your garage - when it comes to weapons endurance
and poitability are to more keen issues than telling your friends you got an m14 because it's trendy.
