I struggled with what to get also. .556 or .308. After lots of research I narrowed my choice down to two .308 battle rifles. The first one I considered was the ADEQ Venator Battle Rifle. The second was the Springfiled Loaded M1A. Both are great rifles. In the end I chose the Springfiled as it is more accurate at longer ranges which makes it more of a hunting rifle, its retro, is a damn sexy rifle. Upgrades are expensive and I experienced a learning curve going to the M1A. Also, being in the Army for 23 years I was use to the AR platform. The M1A was and is something different. If you are considering a M1A platform do some homework first. I am by no means an expert on the M1A but I can report that mine has never jammed, it can reach out and touch someone, and has very little recoil. It commands respect when it comes out of the bag on the range and draws a lot of attention because it seems like everyone has an AR these days. My next rifle will be a .308 AR platform.
If you want to talk M1As on JKO and need and expert opinion I recommend you ask Uncle Sams Misguided Child about them.
