WTB First AR in 308--WHICH ONE IS BEST?

I would like to buy an AR platform 308 rifle in a non- carbine platform.

Whose Rifle is a great (Accurate & Reliable) Value.

Have read quite a bit about them but have NO real world experience with them.
I have always been a Bolt guy.

Have a Rock River AR-15 that I like well enough..

Money is not really the consideration other than good value for Dollars Spent.

Please give your experienced opinions.

Thanks in advance for the help.

There are many good brands of ARs and Rock river is one of them. You will need to look for an
AR 10 or the Remington R-25 (Same An AR 10 ). the AR 10 or R25 has a different lower that
will accommodate the larger rounds Like the 243, 260, 7/08 and 308. and is purpose built for
the larger more powerful rounds.

I would look at the Remington R 25 in 7/08 If it was for me. I like the piston operated ARs but
they are still a little on the expensive side.

There are some conversions for the AR but I wouldn't recommend them.
