I posted this in the AR forum, but would like to ensure local opinions!

Ok..so it's decision time. I know I will be making another purchase for the collection between now on Jan. 31st. I am trying to decide on staying within the current collection by adding a top shelf 6.8 upper or diversifying and picking up a JLD HK in .308. I know these are totally different beasts but I've thought over the following:

Price wise, a top shelf 6.8 upper is not significantly cheaper than the JLD rifle

Ammo: No contest there (at least currently) .308 all the way.

Utility: 6.8 has some good performance reviews, but no one can really argue the .308 is a stopper.

"New toy" factor: For me it's a toss up. Never owned.fired either a 6.8 or a JLD HK

ETA: Put in a poll and actually added the FAL clone

So Hive mind. help me out !

I say go with the HK .308. You need to put up a poll.

Go fer a 308.

Easier to find ammo and a lot more fun!

Hard to find "reliable" 6.8 ammo. I bought a batch from Silver State Armory and the ammo malfunctioned and destroyed my 6.8 barrell head.gif. 308 is better IMO.
