Not to my knowledge. While my personal experience was lackluster, as always, your mileage may vary. The 5.56 model worked out much better for me and I *can recommend it, though I sold it because it simply didnt shoot as well as my AR. It might be a little unfair though to compare the $400 MVP to my $1500 AR15.
As to the .308 Win being adequate cartridge, yes. I would opt for something like the Hornady, SuperFormance, 165 grain GMX. Even the 150 grain GMX would fit the purpose.
As to rifles, I am hooked in the current production Winchester M70s. I also like the Weatherby Vanguards. Cost on an M70 will run around $750, and Vanguards will run around $600. Both will deliver 1 MOA accuracy, and very long life.
Cost me $460.
Accuracy seems to be on par with my friends' Ruger Gunsite Scout Rifle.
So, far it's been reliable with Magpul PMAG LR/SR Gen M3 magazines.
Haven't gotten around to testing it with M14 magazines or other types of SR25/LR308 pattern magazines.
Still shopping around for a good 2-7x scope.
So far, only regret is I should have waited until the MVP Scout 308 was released. I like the extended scout rail and the ghost ring rear sight on it.
