Am I a nut for thinking a FAL chambered in .358Win would be Cool! ???

(or a M1A or a AR10)

Don`t think there`s any real advantage over a 308.......

Maybe we are both nuts: I'm a big fan of medium bores like the .35 Whelan, .350 Rem Mag., and the 9.3 x 62. Balisticly the .358 Win. is their little brother.

The advantage over the .308 is: I have yet to see a .308 that throws a 250 grain bullet at 2400-2500 fps. Show me a .308 that does that and I'll agree there is no advantage.

That's what I was thinking. A bigger hole with a heavier bullet & more ft-lbs of energy.
Inside 200yrds it would be a nice cartridge.
After reading about cartridges like the .458SOCOM I was trying to think of a .308win variant for the FAL or M1A.
A 16-18" carbine for CQB would be lethal & no compromise on magazine capacity. I thought it would be easier to reload for too.
