Good AR - type semi auto

Looking for something in a good semi auto. I am looking at the DPMS Panther LR-308 and the Panther LR- 6.5 Creedmoor , any feelings on accuracy of either. Just shooting coyotes thought I would try one have a lot of long range bolt guns just thought I need something new to tinker with. Has anyone shot the above rifles.

Thanks,

    Don't overlook the LWRC or LMT 308 both excellent quality pieces.

    i gotta ad that when i was shooting for the first 15 rounds the bullets went threw the same hole after that the pattern slowly opened up to the size of a quarter. at 30 rounds the hole was still the size of a nickle from 30 to 40 is were i saw the biggest change in spread. the hole seemed to stay centered it just got wider. i dont know if it was just my shooting or whether the barrel just got really hot. i didnt give it any time to cool. the longest pause was for a mag change
