Not to hijack a thread but I have been thinking about getting a AR-10 .308 type for hunting and also just to have one. Do all the same recommendations also fit? I was looking at the Remington R-25.
Good knockdown power on man and beast, but not the optimum weight for human comfort in hunting, post-Collapse society, runnin'-'n=gunnin', etc.
If You can get an AR-10, feel free to do so. But if You like the .308 bullet in a 5.5.6 commonality AR-type platform, then the .300 Blackout is where it's at.
Fact is that DPMS, Sig, Remington, etc, are all good in the 7.62 caliber. The problem with Armalite is that they use proprietary mags. You can't just use any 308 mag.
The sites I looked at seem to be overly concerned with what to do to fix the guns... not a good sign.
