The FiveSeven is neat, and definitely something cool to say you have if that's big to you. But do you really want a gun chambered in such an odd caliber? It's really only going to be beneficial if you're worried about body armored attackers, or if you really just want to be able to shoot paper with an exotic caliber. I think ammo cost compared to other handgun calibers would be an issue here, though I haven't looked at it's cost.

Depending on caliber, Rem 700. I thoroughly enjoy my dad's 223 Ruger M77 bolt action. I know, boo-hiss poodle shooter 223, but the fun to money ratio can't be beat.

M1A's are cool beans and I want one, but I know I'll kill ammo fast.

If you want a Five-seveN, look at the PMR-30 from Kel-Tec. It isn't as fancy pants as the 5.7mm, but in .22WMR it'll have very similar ballistics and be much MUCH cheaper to run. And cost around $1000 less.....

I have a Remington 700.

In my area, this is this the breakdown-

Remington 700 Varmint in 308 (cheapest way to get a good, bull barrell 308 with a nice wood stock)-$800

FN 5.7 - $1000

M1A (wood stock, adjustable trigger)-$1500

Quite a price jump from the 700 to the M1A. If you have the cash, M1A all the way in my opinion. My 700 is great but in the end it's just a bolt action rifle with a heavy ass barrel that you really don't need. The Five Seven is just a polymer pistol with a high velocity round, nothing special. An M1A is a magnificent automatic rifle, the finest you can buy in my humble opinion. Not even a contest .

So I would forget the FN and decide between the cheaper, bolt action .308 and the more expensive automatic. I will say that, having shot quite a few rounds out of both, I'd trade my 700 for an M1 any day.

M1A. I never regretted at any time buying my M1A and recommend it to anyone considering buying one. Save your money because the prices.

M1A (M-14) only way to go. Keep it stock, no need for bobbles and whistles at 400m you are a killer with stock iron sights, 800m still doable. We are having issues acquiring 7.62X51 NATO ball though, mine does not like anything but FMJ.
