Best bet is same as the smaller caliber, shoot what it's marked for.
Keep in mind that there is no such thing as surplus 308 while you can get surplus 7.62 .
Also, most semi auto rifles will be military style chambered in 7.62 .
Another thing to keep in mind is that semi auto's will be sensitive about bullet weight, a heavier bullet can result in bent or broken parts.

Jay, you might want to look at the Remington 750,It's a very soft shooting semi and larger magazines should be available for it.

I will ditto the Tikka T3s.   I owned a Lite and it was a sweet shooter.  A very smooth action.  I hardily recommend it for a conventional configured bolt action.  They also now make a scout/tactical model as well.  Only draw back is limited magazine availability.

The Remington 750 looks good and comes in synthetic or wood stocked rifles and carbines. The American walnut stock and fore-end will cost you an extra $120. It seem logical that the thicker brass on the 7.62 would have slightly reduced capacity. How this causes lower pressure than the .308 instead of higher pressure is still a mystery to me.

I'm with Frank.  I like the Remington 750.  There is the Browning BAR...but I like the feel of the Remington better.

My dad had a .30-06 Remington 740 and it was a good gun that he used to take deer when he wasn't shooting his Winchester .30-30. High capacity mags were made for it and I bet they are for the 750 which seems to be an improved version of the 740 series. The BAR is a nice looking gun too but the ones I looked at were more expensive than the Remingtons. BARs are also available in magnum calibers so they should be built pretty solid but I always liked the looks of Remingtons. I don't know how either one handles but that would make a difference too.

FNAR would be nice, or an H&K 91 maybe even better, but both more money than I'm prepared to spend now. I may end up at a Cabela's or something, shuffling through their used racks.

DON'T GET SUCKED INTO ONE OF THOSE CENTURY CETME'S.
They SUCK!
The guns are fine, but the sights were put on by drunk monkey's. You can not adjust them enough to get on paper and they are welded on.

Alf would know better, but I THOUGHT I saw some one like Winchester selling theFNAR under another name for about 2/3 the price.
