Re: I'm a young buyer looking into buying a decent semi-automatic rifle.
(And I'd like to be able to pass it on down the generations)
I'd also prefer it be a larger round. I'm a big guy (6'5" 250lb) and I handle recoil well.
I should add that anything I get would be new/excellent condition
Whatever I buy it will be for use within 300 yards or less
I believe that this is part of what I read when I suggested a Garand, just a suggestion that a relative novice to shooting may not have encountered. SKS/AK are a lot of things, but I do not believe 300 yd power is their strong suit. My OPINION only.
