I'm pretty sure it was first a military round and rifle. yes they are more expensive. Hunt Nh, if you will never shoot over 200 yds the 6.8 seems ideal for what you want, but you can get ARs in all the wssm, 6.5 grendel, .300 fireball, .50 beowolf and .450 bushmaster. Step up to the AR 10, which is a slightly larger version of the AR 15, and you can get .243, 308, .260 and all the wsm
no update needed. i own 2 ar platforms, a bushmaster carbon and a dpms 308lr, and sadly sold another, a bushmaster a4. yup much improved over years ago. the point was what was the platform designed for???????rounds down range. a change of mentality from the 03-a3 days. besides snipers/(hunters) today are using what platform predominantly? hunt nh was also talking about bulk ammo to do both hunt and rattle battle, which is again use what was designed for that usage and there are less problems. you can haul lumber in a station wagon but wouldn't a pickup be a better choice type thing.
i think hunting man posted a long list of calibers a while ago. i was really surprised at the choices
I always wanted an ar10 but after talking to several folks that had one i was talked out of it. to the person they said it wasn't what it was suppose to be. the springfield, m14 style or the socom, were a better rifles
