I do like the fact that there are ACOGs that are specifically setup for 7.62. I'm leaning towards the TA11E.

Yeah it sucks but having a pretty rifle with no ammo is not much fun.

I would go with a 1-4x optic for a rifle like that. It should help cover up close to a reasonable distance where your 700 would take over.

My P308 should be here next Tuesday or Wednesday, so I ordered the following.

Trijicon ACOG TA11E-G
Troy Micro Tritium Battle Sights
Larue Tactical LT681 ACOG Mount
Larue Tactical Handstops (going to try these out instead of a vertical foregrip)

I'll keep an eye out for PMAGs and ammo, but I'm not paying crazy money for them.

Great choice on the 11E-G. Same reticle and color I have.

I just grabbed a POF P308 for a nice deal on Gunbroker. Should be here next week.

One of my buddys has a POF and I've played. Nice rifle.

Any ideas? Pretty sure I'm going with Troy battle sights again, but still wondering about optics. I have an EoTech EXPS2 with a 3X magnifier on my .223. Should I stick with the same for this? Also considering going with an ACOG.

How do you like the EoTech EXPS2 with a 3X magnifier?

I've been working on my M&P15 Sport. Added the front rail and ladders, hand grip and butt stock. I am looking for an OD green PMAG if anyone know where to get one at a reasonable price.

That front fixed site drives me crazy. Do you like it, or are you going to get rid of it?

I really prefer the fixed front sight. I have just recently retired from the military and we always had the fixed front sight on our weapons so I am used to it.
