Been reading a lot about the potential benefit of having an 'all purpose' AR platform shooting .308/7.62. I am looking to downsize my collection and love the idea of having a black rifle as my shooter, hunting rifle, home defense gun. But for every positive I read there are also negatives..
I was just hoping that there are enough of you guys with experience on this subject who could give me feedback on the whole accuracy, ammo, recoil, thing, maybe its just too good to be realistic.
I currently hunt with a Rem 700 in 7mm Mag, and its deadly accurate but really too much gun for the whitetail hunting I do. In addition, now I am in thicker hardwoods rather than the open stand I used to have access too..
Not to get into another which manufacturer to go with discussion, just curious as to who has gone that route, and what your personal experiences are with ammo, recoil, and accuracy and if you'd recommend it.
Keep in mind that I have never had an AR in any caliber, either.
Thanks in advance
