AND THE 308 WILL REACH OUT THERE 800 PLUS BUT YOU WILL NEED SOME GOOD/EXPENSIVE OPTICS TOP MAKE IT MUCH FUN. TRYING TO BUILD A SNIPPER/ASSULT RIFLE IS KIND OF A CONTRADICTION IN TERMS. IF YOU ARE AS NEW OF A SHOOTER AS YOU CLAIM. THEN GET SOME THING FUN TO SHOOT

    . I WOULD GO WITH A 223/5.56. THE COST FOR CHEAP STUFF IS NOT THAT MUCH MORE THAN THE 7.62X39. AND THE GOOD STUFF IS AVALIABLE. THERE ISNT REALL ANY GOOD MATCH GRADE 5.45 OR 7.62X39 AVALIABLE AT ALL. ALSO SINCE YOU ARE NOT MENTIONG HUNTING OR KILLING ANY THING WHY WOULD YOU WANT A 30 CAL??? 5.56 RECOILS MUCH LESS AS WELL. MY ADVIVE WOULD BE AN AR 15 WITH A QUALITY 20 INCH MEDIUM TO HEAVY BARREL THIS WILL SHOOT WELL VERY WELL OUT TO 300 YARDS WITH VERY LITTLE PRACTICE. OUT TO 600 YARDS WITH A LITTLE MORE EXPERIANCE AND OVER 1000 AS DONE IN COMPITION WITH GOOD AMMO. AND IT WILL TEAR THE CRAP OUT OF A DIRT CLOD AT 50 YARDS WITH CHEAP AMMO. I ALSO ADVISE YOU LEARN TO RELAOD AS THIS WILL SAVE $$$$$ AND GIVE BETER AMMO AS WELL. AS A NEW SHOOTER DO YOU "HONESTLY" SEE YOURSELF IN A FIRE FIGHT OR CLEARING ROOMS OR ROBBING A BANK???? GET SOME THING THAT IS FUN TO SHOOT WITH A LITTLE LONGER BARREL YOU CAN ALSWYS BUY A SECOND BARREL OR UPPER DOWN THE ROAD FOR WHEN THE WORLD COMES TO AN END. I HAVE ABOUT EVERY CALIBURE THERE IS IN SOME KING OF GUN OR ANOTHER AND ASIDE FROM THE RIMFIRES .17HMR,.22 .22 MAG I ENJOY SHOOTING THE 5.56/223 THE MOST. YOU CAN SEE THE IMPACT AND ITS A TACK DRIVER OUT TO 200 YARDS AN BEYOND.
    Thanks alot, you did it for me.... I was thinking about 20in barrel myself, and 500-600 yards is what I wanted the rifle to perform best at... How to decide what to get, a medium or heavy barrel?
    Any good places you recommend I get parts from? Something on the cheaper side would be good, as I cant afford anything too expensive right now.
    I should learn how to reload, whats the start up cost for the equipment?

    If you're fairly new to shooting long distance, pick-up a Mosin Nagant. They retail for about $100. The ammo isn't extremely expensive and it is fun to shoot old-ass (1940's) commie guns. Buy from a local dealer or at a local show in your state. The standard 91/30 Mosin Nagant is 48" long bolt action, you can get a carbine which is a bit shorter at 40", but gives a harder recoil.

    Armo, if you are relatively new to ar's / ak's I would have to agree with 1biggun. Are you really going to be shooting out to 500 yds? Large caliber guns are excellent but, I think a .223 would serve you better as a training tool. ie Learning how to squeeze off a round without flinching. Wolf ammo is still pretty cheap.
    Any of the known brands Rock River, DPMS, Colt etc will serve you well. Consider a flattop, with a detachable carry handle in case you want to add optics. There are many other brands that some others may have experience with.
    The problem is availability these days, and of course the prices.

    I can't say enough good things about my DPMS 20" CMP. It's wicked accurate and a blast to shoot. Get a spare 16" chrome lined to throw rounds downrange too and you have the best of both worlds.
