My baby brother is 6'5" and about 275lbs.
He want's to buy a rifle but not sure what.
He doesn't want something so small that it feels like a toy and is so short that his arm, shoulder, neck and head have to do unnatural things to get a good sight picture.
I have experience with FAL's but none with a .308 type AR. Any input on which are good and not so good, and capabilities will be appreciated.

L1A1, he can get buttplates in various thicknesses to adjust to his length of pull.
Plus it's the best .308 battle rifle in the world.

Damn skippy!

Besides, he will be able to get 20rnd hi-cap mags for the L1A1 for between $8-$12 where as cheap mags for the AR10 ar from $36 to mags for the SR-25 which are $125+

... Cool factor of the AR10 aside, economically you just can't beat a FAL typed battle rifle.
