I have been thinking aboput a CMP garand. I have heard that after fufilling the requirements you can pick one out at the Anniston AL armory. I have a job ongoing in Tuscaloosa and I ride through Anniston every other week. Do you think they would have 308 garands?
Check out http://www.odcmp.org and read the forums there. People usually post store reports telling you what was in stock when they were there. No .308s that I have ever seen. You need to stop by. It's only about 5 minutes off the highway and is awesome. They people that work there are very friendly and extremely knowledgable about the rifles. I went for one and came back with three and several cases of 30.06.
