as the old saying goes, if you wanna play you gotta pay.
'course now that you can have a bayonet lug, you can always fix bayonets and run to stab the target instead of shooting at it
I image a lot of folks with .308 rifles are not shooting them due to ammo prices, unless they stocked up heavily before the prices went through the roof.
I pretty much seen the handwriting on the wall a couple three years back, when there was no new .308 being imported. So over time everytime I went to a local gunshow I bought a tub of 1260 rounds of South African when it was 250 bucks a tub, and squirreled it away
there are a few threads on some other gunboards that there will be .308 coming in from Korea and Turkey. I don't put much stock in that, I will believe it when I see it. But, IF there is, don't expect it to be cheap, and giving the feeding frenzy for ammo, it will probably go fast.
