While the AR-15 is “America’s Rifle,” its bigger and badder sibling has been increasing in popularity lately. What rifle am I referring to, exactly? That would be the AR-10

The two rifles may be similar in many ways, but they have one major difference. The AR-10 is chambered in significantly more powerful calibers, most commonly .308 Winchester, 6.5 Creedmoor, and 7.62x51mm NATO. With larger calibers comes greater stopping power but reduced capacity. Whether you’re looking to get into precision shooting, big game hunting, or competitions, the AR-10 is a worthy primary weapon choice.
