Re: AR-10 suggestions
Boy, I like hunting with the AR's off snowmachine & 4wheeler. Team sling makes shooting on the fly easier too. We live rural, ride atv to edge of trail/road, peep down over ravine to creek bottoms, catch alot of game in the trees down there. We've been using 223's for 20 years mostly for caribou, and a few lynx & wolves we also catch on the river. Got my first Stagg 6.8 spc this past summer; put that acog 6.8 bdc on her and only have killed caribou with her; but really like that 6.8. I'm waiting on a Armalite 338 federal that I ordered; will be my new carry around for bear & moose I figure. I'm sure I could kill a moose with the 6.8 but want something more.
Always wanted a 308 in an AR10 but have heard that a 300 WSM is available from custom shop. What other larger calibers have you all heard about on an AR 10 platform? I've also heard that stainless is an $$$$ option for heavier calibers.
I handled a Rem R-25 at gun shop I order from and it was a 308 I think, kinda liked the winter camo. We get some long shots up on our summit, usually take the 30-378 when I'm sitting but actually prefer riding trails; see more game; why I like the ARs so much I figure.
