the R-25 is a nice platform from a reputable maker. and the .444 is a proven round on just about everything. i just like the idea of carrying mine. not for the quick reloading, thats irrelevant to me. if i miss with my first shot, im not going to shoot again. it wasnt meant to be i guess. but the quick handling of the 20" barrel, the pistol grip, the EO-Tech holographic weapon sight. that thing can pick up a target quicker than any sight ive ever looked through.

Most sporting arms in the history of firearms were originally developed for military use, so i say the AR platform is just the next modern sporting rifle platform. One note is the R25 and R15 are made by bushmaster for remington

in my opinion its not a big deal but all in all if your comfortable with your weapon of choice than i would use it generally a .308 would be favorable by most hunters but .450 i think might ruin some of your deer meat

and i will call it unsportsmanlike. i have never heard anyone i can call a hunter say anything like that. regardless of how many deer there are. you take one at a time, its a little thing called fair chase. slinging 30 rounds in rapid succesion is more like an ambush. sorry, i call it like i see it. dont be butt hurt over it.

again, as i said before. look up the ballistics of the .450 marlin, the .444 marlin, look at the ballistics of a 348GR powerbelt going 2000FPS. look at the energy a 12GA slug has with a much larger diameter projectile. people hunt all the time with those rounds, and even more than i stated. also, i dont like run of the mill. just because it works for him, doesnt mean i want it. if the companies all came together and made "super round" that would kill everything, ruin no meat, and anyone could shoot it, regardless of size... 2 things would happen; gun companies would go broke within a year or two, and hunting would be boring. thats why we try different things and hunt differently. aside from "getting off as much lead as i can", i dont really dissagree with anyones hunting styles or weapons choice.

look im not gonna go down this road but nodody can call me unsportsmanlike i use a rock river lar 8 in 308.its a five shot and i will outshoot any other semiautomatic deerhunting rifle outthere.remingtons ,brownings etc,now you may not like the looks but i dont care for a benelli r1 that shoots 2 inch groups at 100 when i shoot .25.apples and oranges but its a five shot in a great deer hunting caliber.i do not hunt with my 223,s because i think there are better calibers.the fact is the ar platform is attaining great accuracy and its popularity is growing by leaps and bounds.su look up the lar 8 predator hp
