I am wanting to get a nice gun for long range shooting. I have no experience in it at all. I do like .308 for some reason though. I went gun shopping yesterday and really liked both the M1A and 700. The M1A was the SOCOM II version with the cluster rail, so it was very heavy. Otherwise it felt like a very nice gun. Although ALOT more expensive than the Remington 700. I also noticed alot of swat teams use the 700. So I am torn between these 2. The money isnt an issue, but I dont want to spend an extra grand for a gun that isnt as nice as the cheaper one. Especially if the cheaper will do just as nice of a job. What is your opinion on these 2?
