My wife is wanting to get a 308 auto for hog hunting but she does not want an AR style as they are a bit heavy for her. We were looking at the Remington 750 and the browning BAR in Safari model

I sure would appreciate some feedback if any of you have used one etc. She will scope it with a green light on top at this point.

The BAR safari model in 308 weighs 7 lb 14 oz.

The Short-trac model in 308 weighs 6 lb 10 oz.

If you are wanting a lighter 308, the BAR Short-trac would be the way to go. By the time you add a scope, the safari is not going to be much lighter than an AR.

The Remingtons are sometimes a good gun, but you hear a lot about quality issues, and feeding/ejection issues.

I'd skip the Remington and choose from the BAR models.

BAR hands down. Probably what I will buy my wife for deer/hog hunting, unless I get an AR10 before that

Another route to consider is an AR15 in 6.5 Grendel or 6.8SPC as both can be had in light weight rifles and are quite effective on hogs an deer with less recoil than the 308

Between the two I would pick the BAR hands down every time......I just think the quality of the BAR over the 750 speaks volumes.

This or the 300 Black Out. The BAR rifles I have shot were very poor shooters.

She has been shooting lately a TC single shot in 300 blackout but she wants more shots and she wants a 308. She taken them before with an old bolt gun in 308 but we keep having big groups of hogs and she wants to make 4-5 shots per group but she does not want an AR style. She has one of those in 223 that's she used in the past as well and it is good on head shots for her. The Dang woman gets expensive keeping her in guns.
I looked up Ruger but did not see anything and looked up Bennelli and it did not show anything either.
Thanks guys.

I have a Short-trac and am very happy with it. My previous experience with Remington autos has been very negative.

The only BAR I've experience with was a jamming machine, two smiths couldn't sort it out but that was a much older model. Of the two I'd likely pick the Browning.

BUT I finally got to shoot my 6.8 SPC Saturday with the suppressor, OH MAN. This is going to be a killing machine.

I have many a gun, but the one that kills the most and gets carried the most is a Remington 750 Carbine in 308.

Very compact, decent accuracy 200 and under, and short, compact, low recoil, etc.

Fit's inside the fender width of a honda four wheeler, tremendously reliable and durable.

Come by and try it out sometime.

One of the greatest things about it, is that when slung on your shoulder, the barrel is below head level, never catches a branch.

Have a fnar set up like bar stock wise. Same barreled action slightly different furniture. once i figured out what it liked for reloads its a very accurate rifle. It was picky loading wise, and i was equally stubborn trying to get cfe 223 to work. But once i went to varget its consistently a 3/4 moa gun. Plus its a piston system and gas system is very tunable to run suppressed. I love my ar's, but for a traditional set up and semi a bar is leaps and bounds the best option.

The guys we know at the FHN that I did some design work with told her they were building her a one of a kind 308 as a gift but it is still more than one year [they recently sent a walnut selection] but she wants something now while she waits.

Since you have a really nice 308 coming, have you considered a used Ruger Carbine in 44 mag or 357 mag? They would be light and easy to handle. Plus, they wouldn't take any depreciation if you wanted to sell it after she got her nice FHN. I haven't shot the new Remington 750, but the older woodstock Remington autoloader my dad hunted with kicked like a mule.

Little off topic but if the gun is only going to be used for 8-16 months why not just buy one of the Rem 740 variations. Probably find one that hasn't been fired over 50 times if you look here around DFW. Know you are in Arkansas but .... after you are through you should be able to sell it for the same amount you paid. Wanenmachers is only a couple of weekends away. Have her handle one of the Rem 760 variations. Good pump would probably be almost as quick. Just a thought. back
