While this is a good point, I would point out that a Garand would fill the bill as both a long range and an intermediate range weapon, since he did post that those were the weapons lacking in his arsenal.
Although the Garand does not fit both catagories perfectly, his posting of not wanting to spend the money on a high price AR type indicates a multi role weapon may well be the ticket.
Several companies make a scope mount for the Garand that require no smithing, and a well tuned Garand is good for several hundred yards and more.
