Firearm Forum Question: Any Thoughts on Buying a 308 NATO Assault Rifle

Ask A Firearms Question:
I have two assault rifles now; a 223/556 Colt and a Cz 7.62x39.
Any thoughts out there on adding a 308 NATO/ 308 Winchester Assault Rifle?
Thank you Juicy Rider.

Blog Administrator -
Personally I do not own a 308, either in assault or hunting rifle, nor do I plan on purchasing one in the near future. My primary objection to owning a 308 style assault rifle is the cost of ammo.
Choose wisely grasshopper. 

Here are some photos I found of the typical 308 NATO Assault Rifle. These are from the 2013 online catalogs from various manufacturers:

308 NATO, 308 Win Complete Upper Assembly,
Cost = Varies depending on supplier/manufacturer
Bushmaster 308 ORC Carbine,
Cost = $1,100
DPMS LR-308 Sportical AR-10 SA 308 Remington with Scope,
Cost = $855.00
Sig Sauer R71616BP 716 Patrol SA 7.62x51mm,
Cost = $1,650
Springfield Armory Standard M1A OD Green 308 Winchester
Cost = $1,310
