    What do you plan on using the rifle for...hunting, precision shooting, plinking? Also, what type of budget are you on? You may want to look at the Les Baer website Les Baer Custom Inc....Les Baer is known for making some of the most accurate semi-auto AR style rifles around.

    What are you going to use this for? How much can you spend? Do you have the tools and skill set to build from parts?

    The Barrett M82A1 is extremely accurate and also semi-auto.
    Definitely my vote if the wife says it's OK for you to get a rifle! :laugh:
    (As stated, more info please.)

    thanx so far, to answer the questions though. i would probably do some hunting with it i go out to a buddies property in eastern wa once a year for coyotes, also just general plinking but at distance. the same friend i hunt with just finished building an 800 yard range. and as far as price i got 5,000 limit for rifle, scope, mounts and or other accessories. so depending on the rifle i chose might have to wait for high quality scope etc...

    Try this on for size...also, from what I've heard, the monolithic uppers are top notch and work great with optics since the upper receiver and free floating railed handguard one piece. Les Baer Custom Inc.

    Here is a guy who just bought a R.E.P.R. Link Here
    You might touch base with him and get his firsthand impressions.
    Happy Hunting...for your perfect rifle.

    That's a nice budget for a rifle and glass+. You could go LaRue OBR with a nice Mark 4 to look through....

    Take your time and ask lots of questions. Bolt gun or semi-auto? Nightforce scope and a Savage FP will shoot tiny groups and you would have change. Lots of ooptions. Have fun!!

    i have a 6.5 grendel upper with les baer barrel and bolt(before he came out with .264 LBC) It shoots around .4-.5 MOA. and supposedly the round can stay supersonic out to 1000 yards. This is the most accurate rifle I have every had the pleasure to shoot. has almost no kick/recoil.

    You should look at the les baer .264 LBC. great round, very accurate. and it comes in a semi auto just like you want.
