So what is going to make one stand out above the rest? Looks like Windom and DPMS are close to the $1,000 mark. between those two i leaning towards Windom. What else is out there I should be looking at and why? Thanks

I'm looking a good value in a lightweight 308 AR that hopefully will have some parts that will interchange with an AR 15. The Windom has a lifetime warranty so it does have my attention.

Fully loaded at 10lbs here that isn't bad for an AR in .308

For what's out now, DPMS all the way. Their AR15s take a lot of flack, but their .308s are nothing at which to turn up your nose.

But apparently, Daniel Defense is entering the fray as well. May want to wait to see what comes out of SHOT.

The Smith and Wesson M&P-10 is 7.7 lbs. I had to chance to shoot one and I am sold.

The bad thing about the S&W M&P 10 is it's proprietary BCG/Barrel and the fact that they won't sell replacement parts...

If you get a 308AR I suggest you get the LR308 DPMS platform. Lots of parts out there for them and they also take a lot of AR15 parts which the AR10 (Armalite) platform doesn't take.

X2 for the CMMG MK3 CBR. I love mine. Mine isn't on the light side anymore since I have it setup for long range shooting, but it was when I bought it LOL.
