What is some good ammo for semi-autos in .308?

I know match grade stuff from Federal, etc.... is the best, but I don't want to pay $1 a round.

I'm looking for the 308 equivalent of XM193 and Q3131..... Reliability, reasonable accuracy, and reasonable price.

Thanks!

You really can't go wrong with a lot of the NATO 7.62 that's around now. The Aussie is excellent, also Portugese, and Santa Barbra are tops.

I use Port and Santa Barbara, both great.

If you want the equivalent of XM193 get the LC .308 from ammoman.

What about the Federal .308 XM80PD at Sportsman's guide for 18 cents a round?

Is this the "good" Lake City, or the PD crap?
