    I got 1500 rounds of 308 winchester, its a popular round, powerful enough to kill a large mammal (hunting for food just incase) and can take someone down from 300-400 yards easy. The ammo is light and the gun weighs nothing too. So that was my reasoning for this weapon as a doomsday device, just reliable and easy to maintain. Cant really screw it up and the ammo is plentiful.

    Part of the reason I am going with the M1A is because it is .308/7.62x51mm. I'm pretty well versed on ammo as I have been around guns most of my life and was in the Army(Infantry). I have a tactical 12ga. and a S&W .357sig hand gun already but I want something with a little more range and stopping power. .223/5.56 just isn't going to cut it in my book so the logical choice was the M1A. It's well known for it's accuracy on top of being semi-auto. Should be picking one up in the next month or so and I will stock up on rounds at the same time. 1000 rounds of each and I will be happy.

    I also shoot .308 for my rifle. And agree why (that round) with all the reasons above. I own an AR-30, from Armalite, bolt action like Dan's, but clip loaded (5+1 rnds). I have it pretty customized and will be happy to share photos if there's interest, maybe we should start a gun thread? lol I also own a Beretta PX-4 Storm and a Mossburg 500 Cruiser (12ga), slightly modded.

    sorry it took me so long to get back to you. busy day, and that's cool man, semi autos are very nice too, made for a slightly different purpose imo. maybe this belongs in that thread but it's semi related and your thread, pics of my guns (you guys interested should see lamia's collection!):

    An early point with my rifle, cleaning, on my pool table in an apartment I used to rent (check out the tiny stock bolt knob!).

    Back to today (cut out the case myself):

    Shotgun (Mossburg 500 Cruiser, flash suppressor up front and an adjustable stock in the rear for easy household maneuvering):

    Pistol (Beretta PX-4 Storm, interesting feature, it has a rotating barrel. well it rotates slightly during the first few cm's of travel. look it up online:

    Aftermarket Stainless Guide Rod (over the plastic stock one, this was a dream, the spring stays tight and straight. it's also easier to reassemble, i don't need to push down on the spring/guide rod anymore to fit it, and the slide, onto the frame):

    Rifle without bolt or clip (without mentioning some small things: Armalite AR-30 w/ stock muzzlebrake, custom trigger job, set at 2 lbs, aftermarket buttstock: this gun just doesn't want to be modified lol, which is kind of why i loved it, it needed an adapter to fit a standard A2 buffer, SWFA Super Sniper 20x42 fixed scope, picatinny adapter with Harris bipod, Accushot BT-12QK monopod: QK stand for quick-knob which is a cool feature, that with a push of a button, you can quickly scoot it up or down to its maximum or minimum, but it's without the button pressed, it's threaded so it adjusts slowly for up/down change on the scope. it's obvious it's intended purpose as built: a bench-shooter, super easy to shoot, too heavy and cumbersome for the field (for it's cartridge imo)):

    Aftermarket, butt stock (Magpul PRS) and custom bolt knob:

    Showing how bipod has leg-notches for adjustment:

    Rifle with clip and bolt locked:

    Flash hider (for scope, funny story of how I acquired it, the guy who did my bolt knob offered it to me in a package deal, i guess he had a Super Sniper scope and sold it without it, who knows. 42mm objective is pretty rare afaik)
