This is a very enticing semi-auto .308...and yes I want semi-auto to counter the recoil on a light rifle:
Also considering FAL or RRA? Thoughts? I'm looking for highly maneuverable, good out to 400 yards max, under 8 lbs. I'd rather not consider anything else besides .308 but maybe will if caliber is suitable to take down elk with equivalent of 175 gr. bullet out to 250 yards.

If your willing to go up in weight about a pound, then get an FNAR.  I love mine.  I was also looking at the LR308L before the FNAR.  I hunt with it.   My buddy was surprised by how comfortable it is to shoot.  It loves 168gr bullets.  I've heard it shoots 208gr nicely as well.  Barrel is a 1:10 twist

Downside to the FNAR is that it is ugly, and mags are expensive,  but because of this their price has really plummeted.  Look at gunbroker.  I have the lightweight 20"
